After 29 yrs in Pakistan jail, Kathua man Kuldeep Singh returns home

Published

on

Kuldeep, a resident of village Chinji Makwal in Bilawar tehsil of Kathua district, has come through the Bagha border in Amritsar. Even before reaching his house, there is a festive atmosphere at his home. This is because 53-year-old Kuldeep had accidentally crossed the border into Pakistani territory, where he was caught and arrested on espionage charges. At that time, Kuldeep was 24 years old, and Urmila was just 21 years old. Then his son was only three months old. Now he is 29 years old.

His sister-in-law Rukmani, who reached Amritsar to pick up Kuldeep with her son Amit, became happy on seeing her face. From there, Rukmani called her elder sister Urmila and informed her about the safe return. Here, Urmila was so pleased that she dressed like a bride and gazed at the door. So, although the family members do not even know when Kuldeep will return home, there is peace in his heart now.

After getting Kuldeep Singh medical, he has been taken to the Red Cross office in Amritsar, Punjab, to complete the next formalities. After that, after completion of all investigations, they will be allowed to go home.

Kuldeep Singh was sentenced to 25 years in prison by the government of Pakistan in 1992 for accidentally crossing the border. There was a period of torture for the first three years, and torture was done in the name of interrogation. Even after completing the sentence, Pakistan took a year to complete the formalities to return. In the same year, the Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan had signed for his release on 17 January last, whose one year was to end on 16 March 2022. Before that, he was released.

Kuldeep’s wife Urmila still says that her husband was innocent, so I had complete faith in God that he would return home safely one day. I have waited 29 years. Whenever a prisoner came out of Pakistani jail, my faith in God would become more robust.

‘I was kept in many jails of Pakistan. There he was severely tortured. Now coming back to my country, I feel free. I look forward to meeting the family. Will be with family for the rest of my life”, Kuldeep Singh.

Over 300 doctors and the members of paramedical staff of the Health Department, who comprised the COVID-19 sampling teams in different locations in the Jammu district, have contracted the infection.

Officials said that even as the sampling had been intensified with the deployment of over 53 teams by the Health and Medical Education Department across the district, many of the team members who were involved in collecting samples of the suspected COVID patients from different places, also tested positive.

“Over 300 doctors and paramedical staff members of the health department were found infected with the virus,” said a senior official.

“We are deploying doctors and other medical staff in shifts. After seven days of isolation and medical care, the doctors and other members of the staff are joining duties. After they resume, others infected with the virus proceed on leave for seven days,” he added.

“Somehow, we are managing the sampling which is undergoing in an aggressive manner across Jammu district. We have also deployed six teams for thermal screening of the people at the venue of the main Republic Day function,” the official said.

These teams will remain deployed there till January 29. Besides, the official said, “We have deployed 19 teams at Jammu Airport and 24 teams at Railway Station to sample people on their arrival.” “Around 100-150 samples are collected from Jammu airport and 800 from Jammu railway station as a routine exercise,” the official added.

Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Jammu J P Singh, while speaking to the media, expressed concern over, what he said, “casual approach of the people towards the deadly virus.”

“Despite instructions, they were not reporting to the Chest Disease Hospital at Bakshi Nagar and DRDO Jammu for triage-test,” he said.

“The people with severe illness (comorbidity) and aged having symptoms of COVID19 should come to CD Hospital Bakshi Nagar and DRDO Hospital at Bhagwati Nagar for their medical check-up instead of getting treatment in home isolation,” he said.

He said that the aged and people with comorbidity should approach these hospitals soon after they developed symptoms or they contracted infection so that timely medical care could be provided to them. Another official informed that around 109 infected people were admitted to MCH, DRDO Jammu and GMC Jammu’s COVID care ward. “We have a capacity to admit around 817 infected people in these hospitals and accordingly, the capacity would be increased,” the official said asserting that the majority of the infected people were in home isolation, unlike last year.

Pertinently, the Jammu district has around 59 micro-containment zones while 15 locations were de-notified after the recovery of the infected people.
