Its travesty of justice that the 6 Sikhs, who have been accused of killing Swami Ramanand in Vienna, Austria are till date without effective defense. Another aspect which is also very alarming that the Vienna police has failed to identify the people who made the murderous assault on these youth and is only trying to charge these 6 people and not anyone from the side of the followers of Swami Ramanand.
From witness accounts and personal investigation it has come to light that the incident, which took place in Guru Ravi Dass Temple was triggered due the disrespect being shown by the organizers to Guru Granth Sahib and when some Sikhs who were present in the Temple exhibited their resentment, they were brutally beaten by
the followers of Swami Ramanand.
One of the 6 arrested Sikhs, namely Jaspal Singh has 2 bullet injuries in his head and is in precarious condition. Day before yesterday he has again been sent to the hospital, but he is still under detention.
Why the Vienna police has not arrested anyone for the murderous attack on Jaspal Singh and others?
When more than 100 weapons were recovered from the Guru Ravi Dass Temple, which belonged to the followers of Swami Ramanand, then how come police has not charged even one of his followers for the crime?
As per the police, more than one fire arm and more than 15 shots were fired, by the persons who killed Swami Ramanand, whereas only one fire arm has been recovered, where is the other fire arm ?
May be that other fire arm belongs to the followers of Swami Ramanand?
May be the bullet which killed Swami Ramanand was fired from the fire arm possessed by his own followers?
It’s still a mystery that who fired at Swami Ramanand as the fire arm recovered from the site as per the information available does not have the finger prints of the arrested persons.
LFHRI HAS APPEALED TO INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS ORGS, LIKE, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL TO INTERVENE AND ENSURE THAT THE RIGHTS OF THE ARRESTED ARE PROTECTED.
