Advocate Amar Singh Chahal, counsel of Sikh Political Prisoner Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara, held a press conference at a hotel in Chandigarh today.
Long time counsel of Bhai Jagtar Singh further said that Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has urged the Sikh panth to form a joint committee of various Sikh organisations to hold the Sarbat Khalsa 2016 on Vaisakhi.
Advo. Amar Singh Chahal claimed that Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara was being mistreated by the jail administration since he was announced to be Jathedar of the Akal Takhat Sahib by the organisers of the Panthic gathering (held under the title of the Sarbat Khalsa 2015) at village Chabba on November 10, 2015.
He said that Bhai Hawara was tortured after his arrest as a result he had developed some physical problem and now the jail administration was deliberately not taking proper care of him.
Advo. Chahal also maintained that Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has restrained everybody, except himself (Advo. Chahal), to issue statements on his (Bhai Hawara’s) behalf.
