Bahraich: Eight people were killed in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence in which eight people including four members of the community lost their lives.
Two Sikh farmers of the district and two farmers from Lakhimpur Kheri were killed in the violence and the administration’s initiative is being seen as an attempt to pacify the members of the community.
District Magistrate Dinesh Chandra Singh claimed that this initiative may not have reduced the suffering of the families of the victims, but their attachment to the administration was felt.
Apart from the community members living in Bahraich, the letter is also being sent digitally to the Sikhs living in other districts.
The letter reads, “The incident of October 3 in Lakhimpur Kheri has been condemned by the government and citizens. The government, police and administration are making efforts to deliver justice.”
It said, “The public representatives and common people of the district and people coming from outside should exercise restraint while expressing their condolences.”
“Thank you to all Sikh brothers and sisters for maintaining restraint and cooperating with the government and administration, thereby maintaining an atmosphere of peace and harmony,” the administration said in the letter.
Meanwhile, the head “Granthi” of Bahraich Gurdwara Giani Vikram Singh said that linking the district administration with the language is a good message.
