The Sikh Council UK has written to the Sir David Thompson QPM DL LLB, Chief Constable of West Midlands Police and Simon Foster, Police & Crime Commissioner requesting an urgent meeting to address the many concerns surrounding the conduct of the West Midlands Police held by the Sikh Community.
Two incidents conducted by the West Midlands Police have done significant damage to the trust of our community:
- The raids on the houses of young Sikh activists by the West Midlands Police accused of alleged murder in India. Proceedings in Court have concluded that the evidence to prosecute the individuals and make a case for their extradition was fabricated.And most recently:
- The conduct of West Midlands Police officer(s) where the dastaar of a Sikh gentleman was disrespected on 25th October 2021.
