Press release by Dr. Y. P. chhibbar

KPS Gill appointment condemned
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.
