Khaira urges Akal Takht to excommunicate Jagir Kaur
Chandigarh(DP Correspondent) – After the Akal Takht excommunicated the rape accused former Akali minister Sucha Singh Langah, the leader of opposition in Vidhan Sabha Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Saturday sought a similar action against former SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur. Writing an open letter, Khaira stated that she was convicted to 5 years rigorous imprisonment by a special CBI court of Patiala in 2012 in the murder case of her daughter Harpreet Kaur.“As we are aware, Harpreet Kaur daughter of Bibi Jagir Kaur had died in mischievous circumstances in the year 2000. Despite repeated complaints by one Kamaljit Singh resident of her native village Begowal who claimed to be the husband of Bibi Jagir Kaur’s daughter, no FIR was registered against her. Finally on the direction of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, a CBI inquiry into the murder was initiated,” Khaira stated.“After a prolonged trial in the special CBI court at Patiala, Bibi Jagir Kaur and other accused were convicted to five years imprisonment. Although she was acquitted of the murder charges but the court held her guilty of aborting the foetus of her daughter Harpreet Kaur besides forceful confinement and kidnapping,” he added. Going further, the AAP leader said: “Needless to mention, forcefully aborting a foetus is a heinous crime according to Sikh tenets known as “Narri-Maar”, which is a “Bajjar-Quraiht” (unpardonable sin).”“So after Langah episode, it would be blatant double standards and gross partiality if Bibi Jagir Kaur is not immediately excommunicated from the Sikh Panth and removed as member from the SGPC, as she stands convicted to 5 year rigorous imprisonment without any relief from the higher courts till date,” he appealed to Giania Gurbachan Singh, Jathedar Akal Takht.
