Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) installed a portrait of Jasjit Singh Jammu in Central Sikh Museum of the Golden Temple.

Jasjit was killed in a police firing, after protests broke out to criticise the removal of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale’s poster by police in Jammu on June 2015.

The protest led to clash between the police personnel and agitating Sikhs. Jasjit, who was 23-year-old then, had died in police firing in June 2015.

The portrait was installed after a resolution was passed in this regard by the executive committee of SGPC.

Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh said that Jasjit lost his life at a young age and will always be remembered.

He added that people who do something for the community will find a place in this museum.
