Punjab Sikh sangat leader Rulda Singh dead

Tribune News Service Patiala, August 15
Rulda Singh (60), president of the Punjab Rashtriya Sikh Sangat, a wing of the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh, died this morning in the PGI at Chandigarh after battling for life for over a fortnight.
Two unidentified clean-shaven men attacked him at his residence at New Grain Market, Sirhind Road, on July 29 when they opened fire on him injuring him critically. He was under treatment in the ICU at PGI, Chandigarh.
The police is still to make headway in the case of attack on Rulda Singh. Sources in the police told The Tribune here today that the police was scanning lists of contract killer to probe the angle of “supari killing”. These sources said the police decided to had sketches of the alleged attackers made on the basis of details given by NRI Dalbir Kaur and Rulda’s family members. Rulda had dropped Dalbir Kaur at Ragho Majra in the evening before he was attacked.
A soft spoken, Rulda Singh, was born in a village near Patiala and joined the RSS in 1976 and rose to become president of the Rashtriya Sikh Sangat. He was also general secretary of the NRI wing of the BJP.
A familiar face in the city social life, Rulda Singh remained a man of the masses. He was always around to lend a helping hand for anybody in distress. He was associated with a large number of social and voluntary organisations. Rulda settled down as arhtiya in the New Grain Market on the Sirhind road here about two decades back.
A mail had been received in some newspaper offices wherein a group of Jagtar Singh Tara had claimed responsibility for the attack. Tara is one of the accused in the Beant Singh murder case. The mail reportedly said Rulda was medalling in the Sikhs’ affairs.
