Sikh body asks Portugal not to extradite murder accused Pamma
As Sikh radicals are running a media campaign to save Paramjit Singh Pamma accused in the murder of Rashtriya Sikh Sangat Punjab president Rulda Singh in 2009, from being extradited to India from Portugal, US-based organisation Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) has hired a Portuguese lawyer to fight his case.
SFJ advocate Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, who reached Portugal, referred the extradition of underworld don Abu Salem from Portugal to India as violation of the extradition treaty, and said the treaty would again be violated if the Indian government was allowed to take away Pamma, whose name also figures in 2010 bomb blasts in Ambala and Patiala.
The Indian agencies have been asked to produce evidence against Pamma by January 4 to secure his extradition. Meanwhile, he remains in the custody by Portuguese agencies.
