Bhagat Singh's 'pistol' be displayed in Khatkar Kalan museum:

Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

Bhagat Singh's "pistol", which was found at BSF's Central School of Weapons and Tactics museum in Indore, should be brought back and put on display in the museum named after the legendary freedom fighter at Khatkar Kalan in Punjab, his nephew Abhay Singh Sandhu demanded today.

"Till 1969, the pistol was lying at the Police Academy in Phillaur, Punjab. It was only recently due to the efforts of several people at various level that it was traced in the museum in Indore," 58-year-old Sandhu said.



"A senior official of the CSWT, Indore, recently rang me up informing that the serial number and the make of the pistol were the same which had been accessed from the records and files pertaining to the martyr," he said.

He said the legendary martyr's family now demands that this pistol be brought back and placed in the Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh Museum in Khatkar Kalan.

"We demand that the government make efforts to bring back the pistol belonging to Shaheed Bhagat Singh. As the extension of this museum is also coming up, we demand other personal articles belonging to the Shaheed, which are lying at various other places outside the state, may also be brought and placed in this museum in Khatkar Kalan," Sandhu said.

He said a pair of Bhagat Singh's shoes and his watch, which were lying in the possession of a private individual in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, should also be brought back and put on display in the museum in Khatkar Kalan.
