A tale of tears and of injustice. Feb 4, 2021 4 Jatinder HayerFebruary 4, 2021 | 8 min. read This is a tale of 35 years. A tale of tears and of injustice. Four victims were killed extrajudicially in the Nakodar police shooting incident of February 4, 1986. The agony of family members and loved ones have not ended. The parents of three of the victims have passed away awaiting justice and closure. Many of us will remember the more recent Behbal Kalan incident that took place on October 14, 2015, when villagers were participating in a sit-in protest at Behbal Kalan link road in Faridkot’s Kotkapura constituency. The protest was against the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib which had happened in the nearby Bargari village. The incident, subsequent inquiries, and political drama have been in the news recently as former Punjab DGP Sumedh Saini, suspended IG Paramraj Singh Umranangal, former SSP Charanjit Singh Sharma, and serving SP Bikramjit Singh are now among the accused in this high-profile case of police firing in which two Sikh protesters were killed. What most of us do not know, and many may not remember, is that an eerily similar incident took place in the town of Nakodar 29 years before Behbal Kalan. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
