PM Modi and Rishi Sunak met recently at the G20 Summit to be held in Indonesia. The protesting people raised the question whether Rishi Sunak talked to PM Modi about this? Because earlier former Prime Minister Boris Johnson had discussed this issue with PM Modi. If we talk about Jagtar, then he is a British citizen. He was arrested under the Arms Act after the weapon was recovered. But later seven other charges were also brought against him. Of these, five are related to murder and two to attempt to murder.
Demand for Johal’s release
According to the BBC report, Johal was an active blogger and campaigner for Sikh human rights when he was arrested. Human rights groups claim that the allegations against Jaggi are baseless, and fear that his life is in danger. “UN legal experts have agreed that his detention is arbitrary and that Jagtar must be released immediately,” said Maya Foa, associated with the campaign group Reprieve. His family alleges that injustice is being done to Johal.
letter to prime minister
Hundreds of protesters marched on Downing Street, accompanied by the family and local MP Martin Docherty-Hughes, for Jagtar’s release. The UK government also fears that Jaggi may be sentenced to death. Jaggi’s family also wrote a letter to the Prime Minister. One of the protesters said, ‘At this time, Rishi Sunak and the UK Foreign Office should protect the rights of Jagtar. Provide him the facility of a free and fair trial.
in which case the arrest was made
According to reports, Jagtar Singh Johal had come to Punjab for his marriage on 2 October 2017. He got married on 18 October. After the marriage, her brother Gurpreet Singh Johal and his family moved back to Britain. He was arrested on November 4 at Raman Mandi in Jalandhar. The case in which he was arrested is related to the December 2016 arms haul.
