Sikh Family Seeks Justice


21 year old student Jagtaranjeet Singh committed suicide by hanging himself with his turban.

Details are still emerging about an incident that occurred on August 7th, 2015, involving the death of Academy of Maritime Education and Training University  student and Merchant Navy selectee Jagtaranjeet Singh. Singh left a suicide note in which he attributed his suicide to unjust treatment he received by college dean A. Venugopal, who had told Singh that he must repeat a semester he had already completed.

After news of Singh’s death broke, thousands gathered to demand justice for Singh. Among the demonstrations was a peaceful march and candlelight vigil in Jalandhar, Panjab, attended by UNITED SIKHS activists.
