Centre decides to grant special dispensation to 9 Sikh prisoners

Centre decides to grant special dispensation to 9 Sikh prisoners

New Delhi, Sep 28 (UNI) The Centre on Saturday decided to grant special dispensation to nine Sikh prisoners across the country on the occasion of 550 birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev as a humanitarian gesture.

In one case, the decision has been taken to commute the death sentence to life imprisonment, and in remaining eight cases, decision has been taken for premature release of prisoners serving life sentences and other sentences, through special remission, a Union home ministry said in a statement.

These individuals were convicted by various courts across the country for the offences committed by them during the militancy period in Punjab.

The State Governments and Union Territories concerned have been sent a communication from the Union Home Ministry for release of these Sikh prisoners.

This decision has been taken as a token of goodwill in response to the long pending demands of release of Sikh prisoners articulated by various sections of the Sikh community.
