A Shaurya Chakra awardee who had taken on the heights of insurgency in Punjab in the 90s was shot dead at his residence in Tarantaran district on Friday. The patriot was shot dead six months after his security cover was withdrawn. The family alleges that Balvindar Singh's security was withdrawn despite their complaints about threats that the family was repeatedly receiving. The family is now mulling to move court against the Congress government.
The family questions Captain Amarinder Singh. Arshdeep Singh who is Balwinder Singh's son states that the family was blessed with four Shaurya Chakras. He also believes that terrorists with Khalistani's mindset are behind the murder.
