Press release by Dr.
Y. P. chhibbar
KPS Gill appointment
The Peoples Union for Civil Liberties is dismayed at the reported appointment
of the retired Punjab Police officer KPS Gill as the Security Adviser
to the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Narendra Modi.
Shri KPS Gill was convicted by the Court of sexual harassment of a woman
officer of the I.A.S cadre, Ms. Roopan Deol Bajaj. Shri Gill is also one
of the most vocal opponents of Human Rights. Gujarat is witnessing widespread
violation of human rights and the National Human Rights Commission has
strongly condemned the violation of Human Rights in the State.
Sending Shri Gill on such a sensitive assignment to Gujarat will further
endanger Civil Liberties and Rights of the people in the State.
