Protests for Justice After Sikh Youth Hangs Himself Due Harassment

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 protest demand justice for Singh. Among the demonstrations was a peaceful march and candlelight vigil in Jalandhar, Panjab, attended by UNITED SIKHS activists.
