New Delhi: Khalistan supporter and radical Sikh preacher Amritpal Singh has won the Lok Sabha elections. As soon as he became an MP, Amritpal Singh’s fans have also become active. The situation is such that there is a stir in America regarding Amritpal. The matter of Amritpal Singh’s release has now reached US Vice President Kamala Harris. American-Sikh lawyer Jaspreet Singh has demanded America’s intervention to get Khalistani supporter Amritpal Singh released from jail. For this, he has contacted US Vice President Kamala Harris.

American Sikh lawyer Jaspreet Singh says that he has studied the Amritpal Singh case in depth. He believes that Amritpal Singh’s detention is unjust. In fact, Amritpal Singh has won as an independent candidate from Khadoor-Sahib seat in the Lok Sabha elections 2024. Amritpal Singh is lodged in Dibrugarh jail in Assam on charges of terrorism. Here, Amritpal Singh, who is in jail, will write a letter to the Punjab government and plead for temporary bail from Assam jail to take oath as a Lok Sabha member. Khalistani separatist Amritpal Singh, who contested from Dibrugarh jail, has won by a margin of about two lakh votes against Congress’ Kulbir Singh.

Demand for intervention from Kamala Harris
According to India Today report, Jaspreet Singh is planning to contact more than 100 US Congressmen to put pressure on the Indian government for the release of Amritpal Singh. Jaspreet Singh said in a YouTube video, ‘I have met her (Kamala Harris) twice in the last two-three months. I talked to her on immigration issues. I have talked to her (Amritpal Singh) about this. She has given me time to come to her office. I will meet her on Tuesday, June 11. Amritpal Singh’s victory was very big and keeping him in jail continuously raises serious questions on human rights.’

Contact with 20 American leaders
Jaspreet Singh represents various Sikh organisations in the US. The matter has attracted the attention of several US leaders, including Vice President Kamala Harris. Jaspreet Singh has been in constant touch with them. This is the first time he is raising an issue related to India with so much energy and enthusiasm. Jaspreet Singh mentioned that he had met several US senators and congressmen, including Senator Jacqueline Sheryl Rosen and Congressman Ruben Gallego from Arizona, to discuss the matter. Jaspreet has spoken to more than 20 US leaders.

Amritpal was arrested last year
Amritpal Singh contested as an independent from Khadoor Sahib seat in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. He defeated Congress candidate Kulbir Singh Zira. Amritpal won by a margin of 1,97,120 votes. He got 4,04,430 votes while 2,07,310 voters voted in favor of Zira. His parents Tarsem Singh and Balwinder Kaur reached Assam on Saturday to meet him.
