Taking cognisance of the killing of two brothers allegedly by the police and a Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader at Jamalpur in September last year, the Punjab State Human Rights Commission has sought a status report from the state government and the police.


Jatinder Singh and Harinder Singh were killed at Ahluwalia Colony, Jamalpur on September 27, 2014. The commission took note of the case following a complaint by president of the human rights wing of the Rashtra Dharma Society, Ludhiana, Rajdeep Singh.

The commission has sent a letter through its registrar to the additional director general of police (ADGP) and the Ludhiana commissioner of police asking them to submit the status report.

In his complaint, Rajdeep Singh said the two brothers, residents of Bhoapur village near Machhiwara, were brutally killed by the police team and a politician. Singh alleged the police authorities were trying to shield the culprits and had only register a case against junior policemen.
