The two younger Sahibzadas — Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Fateh Singh — were bricked alive this day in 1704 by Nawab Wazir Khan, the then Governor of Sirhind. Nawab Sher Mohammad Khan of Malerkotla, who ...happened to be there, earnestly pleaded that the children were too young and innocent to be punished but Nawab Wazir Khan ordered BabaZorawar Singh and Fateh Singh to be bricked alive.
Diwan Todar Mal broke this news to Mata Gujriji which proved fatal to her. The renowed Hindi poet Maithillisharan Gupt commemorates the unique sacrifice in a poem given below :-
"Jis kul Jaati desh ke bachche
de sakte hain balidan,
us desh ka vartman kuchh bhi ho
par bhavishya hai maha mahan"
(The community and the nation which are capable of such a heroic sacrifice have a great future in store for them regardless of their present.)
Katai Bap Ne Betey Jahan Khuda Ke Liye!

Chandigarh, September 29 Bringing the curtains down on the drama enacted by the Punjab police, IPS officer Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh has cracked the missing girl’s case.
Soon after the Punjab police tried to plant a stranger in place of the missing girl and asked her parents to accept her as their daughter, the Punjab-cadre IPS officer of 1998 batch tracked her down in Delhi. Her recovery has also brought to fore the sordid reality of callous handling of domestic helps in the country.
Pooja (15) went missing from Amritsar three years ago. The probe into the matter was handed over to Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh by Justice LN Mittal of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. His name was suggested by advocate GK Mann, representing Pooja’s father Sonu Parshad.
The investigation revealed that Pooja was taken as a domestic help by Puran Kaur of Amritsar in 2008 with the consent of the girl’s father.
But later Pooja was sent to Delhi to work as domestic help with Kaur’s son Sukhbir Singh.
Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh, SSP Crime Branch, said the girl escaped from Sukhbir’s house, as she was subjected to physical and mental torture. She somehow found her way to the house of a retired CRPF DIG. The parents have identified the girl as their daughter and she will be handed over to them after taking orders from the court of the Amritsar Chief Judicial Magistrate.
Giving details of the probe, the SSP said a team of officers, comprising DSP Vibhor Kumar, DSP Jagjit Singh, Inspector Makhan Singh and other officials, were constituted.
The interim bail granted to Sukhbir and his mother was cancelled on the request of the Crime Branch.
Sukhbir and his son, Arundeep, were then arrested before being taken on a four-day remand. The girl was traced to the Janakpuri area at the instance of the accused where she was living with a couple as a domestic help.
The police earlier wanted Sonu Parshad to believe that the girl handed over to him was indeed his missing daughter.
The Amritsar resident was sure that the police was bluffing. After the DNA test proved true his worst apprehensions, Justice Mittal has asked the IPS officer to carry out the probe.

Sunday, September 27, 2009 AMRITSAR: Refusal by Amritsar Senior Superintendent of Police Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh to hear the delegation of Shiromani Akali Dad councillors led by Youth Akali Dal general secretary Mandeep Singh Manna, who faces criminal charges, has put the two in conflict. Now when the district police have decided to go ahead with the action against Manna, the SAD councillors will stage a dharna next week to demand the transfer of the SSP. Addressing the media on Saturday, Manna, who was there along with the councillors, said: ”A group of 6-7 councillors from the SAD accompanied me to the office of the Amritsar SSP, but he made us sit there for nearly 90 minutes and, later, misbehaved with us on telephone and refused to meet us.” Manna alleged the working of the Amritsar police was not up to the mark and recently it had called a girl to the police station and made her sit there for long. The SAD councillors said the dharna against the SSP would be on from September: 29 till his transfer. When contacted SSP Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh said: “Manna faces criminal charges and I cannot entertain him in my office. His place is in the lock up. I will not entertain anyone who supports him. There are a couple of cases against Manna and the police are doing their job.” During the press conference, C Division SHO Prabhjot Singh served summons to Manna, which the Youth Akali Dal leader refused to accept. When contacted, the SHO said: ”A case of cheating was registered against a man called Rakesh Jangi, who is in custody. The police also suspect the involvement of Manna in this case and, hence, he got the summons.” SAD councillors Amarjit Singh, Jatinder Pal Singh, Amarjit Singh, Surinder Singh and M.S. Verka were present at the press conference. SOURCE-HT [www.amritsarhelp.com/amritsar/amritsar-news-transfer-calls-over-ssp-snub-to-akali-leader/]
