The Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh has termed the dismissal of petition of Devinderpal Singh Bhullar, a death row convict, as shocking and disturbing for people of Punjab in general and Sikh community in particular.
He said, "The decision was travesty of justice as Prof Bhullar is on death row since 18 years. Secondly he was given punishment on the basis of confessional statement taken by police officer under torture. Thirdly it was a split verdict as the then Chief Justice acquitted him. Fourthly, he was deported from Germany, where capital punishment is not given."

He quoted Indian government giving a word to Italian government in the case of Italian marines facing murder charges in India.
