Paramjit Singh Kainth, President of the National Scheduled Castes Alliance today met with Shri. Vijay Sampla, Chairman of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes in New Delhi regarding the inhuman lynching of Lakhbir Singh at Singhu Border in the NCR region on 15th October.

Resident of District Tarn Taran and a father of 3 daughters, Lakhbir Singh was brutally murdered with one of his hands and legs chopped off, vand was tied to a metal barricade when the locals first spotted him. The organization submitted their letter of demands regarding the case to the Constitutional Body formed under Article 338 of the Constitution, demanding for swift legal resolution of the case, prompt financial assistance for the aggrieved family and no mercy for the culprits behind this heinous crime. 

“The government should take stern action against such hate crimes and make an example out of this case so that no one in the future has the courage to commit such heinous crimes against anyone and not just a Scheduled Castes person. This case has once again brought out the fissures which were buried deep in our society and we cannot dismiss considering this as a hate crime against the Scheduled Castes. A high level investigation into the matter is demanded by us and we shall be forced to initiate a wider protest if the case is not resolved.” said Kainth.

Mr. Kainth further pointed out to what he called a ‘taliban’ style lynching as a sign of hatred which he believes has been the reason why the Scheduled Castes community has suffered discrimination and inequalities even after 74 years of Independence. He said, “The entire nation is shocked that in this day and age people have the audacity to even conceive such a horrendous crime let alone doing it in the manner that we saw at Singhu Border. The poor man leaves behind 3 children who have not only lost their father but also their source of livelihood and even more so, their happiness. The culprits behind this monstrosity have to be punished with the severest of punishments without any mercy.” 

Mr. Vijay Sampla assured the delegation that proper action will be taken in the matter. He said, “I’ve talked to the DGP and Chief Secretary of Punjab and Haryana regarding the case and will be overseeing the entire process through the Commission till the culprits are behind bars and justice has prevailed.” 

NSCA asked for financial assistance to be provided to the family of the deceased and a government job for the next of kin to be assured. Mr. Kainth also said, “People are trying to connect this crime with ‘religious sacrilege’ and making it controversial rather than pointing to the simple plain fact that a person has been brutally murdered without any fear by the culprits.

Even if the alleged cause has been purported to be so, No one in this nation has the liberty to carry out such inhuman injustice to anyone. Murder of Lakhbir Singh is in a sense, the Murder of our ‘sacred’ Constitution which protects and rights and liberties of the Scheduled Castes community as well as the basic Right to Life under Article 21 which protects everyone.” 

“The government should take stern action against such hate crimes and make an example out of this case so that no one in the future has the courage to commit such heinous crimes against anyone and not just a Scheduled Castes person. This case has once again brought out the fissures which were buried deep in our society and we cannot dismiss considering this as a hate crime against the Scheduled Castes. A high level investigation into the matter is demanded by us and we shall be forced to initiate a wider protest if the case is not resolved.” said Kainth.
