NEW YORK: S. Ranjit Singh Gill and S, Sukhminder ‘Singh Sandhu have taken a strong exception to the press release issued by Dr. Gurmit Singh Aulakh to Counter Terrorism (February 22, 1988). No one other than their attorneys and the Sikh Cultural Society New York, is authorized to issue any press release in their behalf, they informed World Sikh News. Irresponsible statements and statements not approved by their attorneys can seriously hurt their case, he said.

Gill and Sandhu are currently lodged in the Metropolitan Correctional Center, New York, and are facing extradition proceedings against them. The Indian government has framed them in a number of cases and is using every conceivable strategy to secure their extradition. The sensational disclosure that the Prosecution Attorney, Judy Russel herself authored the terrorist letters has given an al- together new twist to the case. There is every likelihood of a new trial.
