A Shaurya Chakra awardee who took on the heights of the insurgency in Punjab in the 90s was shot dead in broad daylight at his residence in Tarn Taran in Punjab. Six months prior to the killing of Balwinder Singh, the security was removed of this patriot. The police now claim that the security was removed due to COVID-19. The family, however, is not ready to believe this and demands justice.
The family of Balwinder Singh also refuses to perform the last rites until and unless the government assures security for the family. Balwinder Singh's family has now been on the hit list of the terrorists as they have very actively fought against terror activities in the area.
