Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday lauded the role of former state DGP KP Gill (responsible for killing of sikh youths in fake encounters and known as Butcher KP Gill in Sikh community) in tackling terrorism in the state.

Speaking at Gill’s bhog ceremony here, Amarinder said Gill’s example should be emulated by the current and next generation of police officers in Punjab. Ģill provided leadership to the police force of Punjab during the dark days of terrorism, he said.
Describing Gill as his friend, the Chief Minister said Punjab and India had lost a great nationalist. Those who did not see the dark days of militancy in the state would not be able to appreciate the contributions of Gill.
“The only way we can pay our respects and tribute to the great soul is by maintaining peace and tranquillity in the state for which he fought,” Capt Singh said.
“Gill had given everything for the country and the state. If young officers emulate Gill, Punjab and the country would not look back,” he said.
