Following the rejection of conditional bail by the additional sessions court of Jalandhar, the Punjab and Haryana High Court granted bail to the former militant and SGPC member Kulbir Singh Barapind on Friday so that he could attend the special session of the SGPC at Teja Singh Samundhari Hall in Amritsar on November 5.

Barapind, former Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) Panjwar militant, SGPC member and Akali Dal Panch Pardhani leader, has been charged with murder. He was booked for killing one person of Salarpur village last year along with a UK-based NRI and a few others. Eleven people were arrested in that case.
