Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Ht Punjab -

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.
