Tarn Taran: Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh’s wife accused the government and intelligence of his death a day after he was shot dead at his own house.

Singh’s wife Jagdish Kaur said, “The government, administration and intelligence agencies are responsible for this. We sought security again, but to no avail. Those who treat security cover as a status symbol have been provided with it. We actually needed it but weren’t provided,” was quoted as saying by TimesNowNews.Com

Kaur accused that the family asked the authorities for protection but they received no action in response.

She also said that the withdrawal of the security cover “was wrong,” and there have been several attempts to kill him in the past.

“There are 42 registered FIRs of attacks on our family, and countless other attacks have taken place, which is not on record. The withdrawal of security was wrong,” she said.

“If we had security then this would not have happened, as killers would have feared retaliation. We had sent several emails, written applications and also met officials, but we didn’t get any security: Pranpreet Kaur, daughter of Balwinder Singh who was shot dead at his house,” she added.

Singh was shot dead at his residence at Bhikhiwind area of Punjab on Friday when he opened the gate of a school which he used to run and two armed men were waiting outside shot five rounds at him. Then, he was immediately taken to the nearest hospital, but he was declared dead on arrival.

The district administration said that the security cover which was sent to Singh was withdrawn due to COVID-19 pandemic. Also, the administration didn’t provide three gunmen to the family.

SDM Rajesh Sharma said, “The security cover was withdrawn due to Covid-19. When the emergency situation arose, gunmen provided to everyone were called back by the state police department. It is unfortunate that such an incident took place. Now, three gunmen have been provided to the family.”

Now, the police have launched an investigation into the case after Singh’s family had claimed the involvement of terrorists into the matter.
