Two more Nihangs -- Bhagwant Singh (L) and Govind Singh (R) -- surrendered to police.



Two more Nihangs - 'warrior' Sikhs - have surrendered to the police in connection with the gruesome murder of a Dalit labourer at a farmers' protest site in Singhu on Friday. One surrendered this morning and another was arrested, taking the total number of accused in the case to four.

The two who surrendered last evening have been identified as Bhagwant Singh and Govind Singh. Visuals showed the two men - with garlands around their necks - walking as supporters cheered them.

On Friday evening Saravjit Singh - a Nihang - surrendered to Haryana Police and claimed responsibility for the sickening killing of 35-year-old Dalit labourer Lakhbir Singh, who was found tied to a police barricade at Singhu with his left hand and right leg cut off.

Singh was produced at a local court on Saturday and sent to seven days' police custody; authorities asked for 14 days', saying he had info on other suspects and that they had to recover the murder weapons.

In a video that emerged on Saturday the Nihang member has claimed "no regrets" over the killing.

The video - from before his surrender - shows him tightly flanked by other Nihangs - at least two of whom still carried swords - as a reporter asks: "Do you feel repentance?"

To this Singh looks disinterested, waves the question away and shakes his head, and replies "No".

The body of Lakhbir Singh, 35 years old and from Punjab's Tarn Taran district, was discovered early yesterday morning. It was found tied to a police barricade with the left hand and right foot cut off.

As news of the brutal and sickening murder spread, at least three videos were circulated, showing a large group of Nihangs, standing around his body as lay bleeding and in pain.

I'm starting to wonder whether Nihangs being considered to be an anti-quaited spent force on the periphery of the panth, was somewhat of a blessing in disguise. They've been looked down upon by the... shall we say, the comparably politically astute, established, mainstream jathe of the previous 80 or so years, that maybe their self-imposed aloofness actually kept them in-tune with their authentic past to a certain degree. We'll see.

We'll see what? 

Just how buck-wild they will get, push comes to shove? lol

    • just got this from the Library ** THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER **A GUIDE TO USING THE SCIENCE OF THE BODY CLOCK TO CREATE THE OPTIMUM PERSONAL ROUTINE: SLEEP BETTER, WORK BETTER, FEEL BETTER.'A superlative guide to some of the most intriguing questions of human existence' - Bill Bryson, author of The Body: A Guide for Occupants'Who knew our body clocks determined so much of our health, happiness, and lifespan?I learned so much' - James Nestor, author of Breath  In the twenty-first century, we increasingly push our daily routines into the night, carrying out work, exercise and our social lives long after dark. But we have forgotten that our bodies are governed by a 24-hour biological clock which guides us towards the best time to sleep, eat and think. In Life Time, Professor Russell Foster shares his life's work, taking us on a fascinating and surprising journey through the science of our body clocks. Using his own studies, as well as insights from an international community of sleep scientists and biologists studying circadian rhythms, he illustrates the surprising effects the time of day can have on our health, including:- how a walk outside at dawn can ensure a better night's sleep- how eating after sundown can affect our weight- the extraordinary effects the time we take our medication can have on our risk of life-threatening conditions, such as strokesIn the modern world, we have neglected an essential part of our biology. But with knowledge of this astonishing science, we can get back into the rhythm, and live healthier, sharper lives. https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/321815/life-time-by-foster-russell/9780241529317
    • "I'm a devout Sikh -- and married to a man." What an absurd statement. I'm glad that Jasvir Singh has a trimmed beard, as it helps make it obvious how inaccurate his claim of being a "devout Sikh" is for people who may not know that same sex marriage is not compatible with a gurmat lifestyle.     The funny thing is, just observing the organization from its online presence, I would have guessed that it was created primarily to help guys like Jasvir Singh and Param Singh (remember how he appeared on a dating game show?) meet women. How wrong I was.
