A delegation, led by Manwinder Singh  Giaspura, who had been fighting a legal battle for more than two decades to secure justice for the families of 79 Sikhs of Haund (Rewari) and Gurgaon-Pataudi villages in Haryana, who were killed during the 1984 Sikh carnage, met leader of opposition in Punjab Assembly here on Friday, urging him to take up the matter with Haryana government. The delegation also delivered copies of the inquiry reports conducted by Justice T P Garg (Retd) in support of their demand. Harpal Singh Cheema assured the delegation that he would take up the matter with state chief minister, Manohar Lal Khattar and   Assembly speaker, Gian Chand Gupta to bring those behind the carnage to justice, saying that he would insist them to discuss the issue  on the floor of the House. Cheema and Manwinder Singh Giaspura informed that 32 innocent Sikh from Haund- Chillar and 47 from Gurgaon-Pataudi village were ruthlessly done to death by a mindless mob, saying that a committee was constituted to look into the brutal killings under Justice T P Garg (Retd). They lamented that even after 6 years of inquiry down the line, four police personnel were found guilty of dereliction of duty, recommending stringent action against them. The committee had also directed to pay the affected families a compensation of Rs 10.6 crore (Haund Chillar) and Rs 13 crore  (Gurgaon-Pataudi). Cheema informed that while the Haryana government had paid the compensation to the affected families, action against the killers was still awaited.Others who were present on the occasion, were senior leaders of the party Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Principal Budh Ram (Both MLAs), state media head Manjit Singh Sdhu, Jagjit Singh and representatives of the Haund-Chillar coordination committee.
