Shaurya Chakra award recipient Balwinder Singh was shot dead in Punjab's Tarn Taran district by two unidentified men.

Balwinder Singh had fought terrorism and his family remained on target of the terrorists for years.

SDM Patti Rajesh Sharma said that security has been provided to deceased's family members.

He said three gunmen will be deployed to provide security to Singh's family.

"Security (of Balwinder Singh) was withdrawn during COVID-19.

When the situation arose suddenly, gunmen provided to everyone were called back by the Police Dept.

Unfortunately, such an incident took place.

Now three gunmen have been provided to the family," he said.

Punjab government has formed a Special Investigation Team to look into the murder.

In CCTV footage, two unidentified men can be seen, one of whom went up to his house and shot him at point blank range.

1710 Sandhu Killed-

A day after Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh Sandhu was assassinated in Punjab, his wife, Jagdish Kaur, blamed the government and intelligence agencies for not paying heed to the several appeals that they made for security. She said, β€œThere are 42 registered FIRs on attacks on our family and countless other attacks have taken place which are not on record. Withdrawal of security was wrong.” She added, β€œThose who treat security cover as a status symbol have been provided with it. We actually needed it but were not given.” The 62-year-old Sandhu, who fought terrorism in Punjab, was shot dead in the district on October 16, months after the government withdrew his security cover. The motorcycle-borne men pumped four bullets into him when he was at his office adjoining his home at Bhikhiwind. Watch the full video for more details.
