Punjab DIG resigns, announces to join farmers’ protest

Chandigarh, December 13, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
Punjab’s Deputy Inspector General (Jails) Lakhwinder Singh Jakhar on Sunday submitted his resignation in protest against the contentious farm laws.

Jakhar said he was the son of a farmer and would join the farmers’ protest.

ADGP (Jails) PK Sinha has confirmed the development. However, the government is yet to accept his resignation.

Lakhwinder Singh Jakhar DIG Punjab PoliceJakhar was suspended in May after a DSP alleged that Jakhar and his staff demanded a monthly bribe. He was later later reinstated. Jakhar had denied the charges saying there was ‘more to it’.

Jakhar had made headlines when as Superintendent of Patiala jail he declined to carry out the death sentence awarded to Balwant Singh Rajoana, a convict in former Chief Minister Beant Singh’s assassination.

In his resignation letter, Jakhar, who also served the Indian Army, wrote: “I am a farmer first and a police officer later. Whatever position I have got today, it is because my father worked as a farmer in the fields and he made me study. Hence, I owe my everything to farming.”

He told the media that his mother encouraged him to resign so as to sit with farmers in Delhi.

“I am likely to visit Delhi soon,” he added.
