Court rejects bail plea of accused who visited Darbar Sahib wearing Tytler’s t-shirt

AMRITSAR: The Amritsar court of district session judge Daljit Singh Ralhan has rejected the bail application of Karamjit Singh Gill, accused who visited Sri Darbar Sahib wearing t-shirt of 1984 Sikh genocide accused Congress leader Jagdish Tytler.

Giving information in this regard, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) assistant secretary media Kulwinder Singh Ramdas informed that the lawyers of accused Karamjit Singh Gill argued in the court that his motive was not to hurt religious sentiments, but it was only to pay obeisance wearing t-shirt with photo of his political guru (master) (Tytler), which does not amount to offence.

On the other side, on the basis of the investigation by Commissionerate Police, Amritsar, a case of promoting enmity between different religious groups has been registered against Karamjit Singh Gill under Section 153-A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Ramdas said that public prosecutor Anju Sharma and for SGPC Advocate Bhagwant Singh Sialka and Manjit Singh Chhina appeared in the court, who presented the argument in the court that accused Karamjit did not visit Sri Darbar Sahib to pay obeisance but only to hurt sentiments of community. He said earlier too accused Karamjit had cut the cake of his political guru on his birthday, after which they received the threats and the police provided them security.

During his visit to Sri Darbar Sahib, accused Karamjit took the entrance wearing a different shirt, but later he wore a t-shirt with photo of Jagdish Tytler and got his photographs clicked, which were later uploaded on social media. Accused Karamjit did not pay obeisance at Sri Darbar Sahib during his visit, and his entire act has been caught on CCTV cameras. This clarifies that the accused visited Sri Darbar Sahib only to hurt sentiments of a community.

The honourable court rejected bail application of accused Karamjit after listening to arguments of both the parties.
