ON TWITTER CAMPAIGN TO ‘SAVE’ HIM
Punjab police have termed a campaign launched in the UK and online to save Jagtar Singh ‘Jaggi’ Johal “unfortunate and uncalled for”. On Twitter, the hashtag #SaveJaggi is being used for the campaign.
“We have arrested (Jaggi) Johal after through investigation. It is unfortunate that some people are running a campaign claiming his innocence. In my career of more than 35 years, I have not found any relative of an accused who admits that his or her relative has committed a crime!” remarked state director general of police (DGP) Suresh Arora. Notably, Sikh MPs in the UK, including Preet Gill and Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi, have written to the British high commissioner in Delhi against the arrest. MP Martin DochertyHughes has supported it.
