Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa, who was sitting on an indefinite fast to seek release of six Sikh prisoners who had completed their term, held a meeting with Sikh Bandi Morcha here on Saturday and demanded permanent release of the three prisoners who are out on parole for 28 days.

"Gurmeet Singh, Lakhwinder Singh and Shamsher Singh, all three were sent to prison for19 years and they have completed 22 years in jail," said Khalsa. He added that the three have been completing all formalities as per the rules, so the government should release them.

Khalsa was earlier sitting on a hunger strike at Amb Sahib Gurdwara in SAS Nagar, seeking release of the six prisoners who have completed their term.

He said if the government failed to accept their demand regarding the permanent release of three Sikh prisoners, they will plan future course of action in the next few days.
