Jamshedpur, Jan. 10 : All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) Jharkhand chapter president Satnam Singh Gambhir has been appointed the East India president of Justice for Victim Organisation. Chairperson of the organization Nirpreet Kaur has appointed him as the president of eastern region.
Under the leadership of Gambhir, Sikh Youth Federation has reorganised itself to reach to the grassroot level of the society. He has been fihiting for the cause of 1984 Sikh riots. A PIL was filed in the Ranchi High Court to bring justice to victims of 1984 massacre by the All India Sikh Students Federation, after which a member commission was formed by the Jharkhand government on the order of the High Court, resulting in compensation for the victims too.
He said that the assassination of Indira Gandhi led to the 1984 Sikh Massacre in India. Sikhs in Bokaro, Dhanbad, Ranchi, Ramgarh and Adityapur ( Seraikela Kharsawan District) were murdered to death while their properties were destroyed.
He said that though the Government has claimed to pay Rs 14,99,35,556 to victims but just paying the compensation cannot bring justice to the victims. Government needs to book people responsible for the genocide and take legal action against them.
