Debt on the head, forced father and sister, what did they leave behind Shubman died at Khanuri border


21-year-old Shubhkaran Singh, who was killed during the farmers' strike, belonged to a poor family. He left 8 days ago from village Baloke in Bathinda district of Punjab to join the Delhi Chalo March. On Wednesday, he died in an action between farmers and the police at the Khanuri border entering Haryana. No information is yet available about the cause of death of Shubhkaran Singh. Even the post-mortem of his body has not been done as the farmers are demanding the government to give compensation and government job to his family first.

Shubkaran Singh was the son of Charanjit Singh, a resident of Ballo village in Bathinda. He is the only brother of his two sisters. His mother has passed away, after which grandmother Sukhjit Kaur raised the three siblings. Shubkaran's elder sister Gurpreet Kaur is married while younger sister Jaspreet Kaur studies in the 12th standard in the government school of the same village. Shubkaran himself was also single.

Shubkaran's cousin Nirbhai Singh said that his uncle Charanjit Singh Ballo owns one and a half kilos of land in the village. They earn their livelihood by farming this land. Shubkaran used to help his father in farming and his family lives in a mud house. Shubkaran's neighbor Gurvinder Singh and village numberdar Avtar Singh said that Charanjit Singh's family has a debt of Rs 18 lakh.

Farmers are demanding loan waiver in addition to minimum support price (MSP) of crops. Shubkaran also wanted his family's debt to be waived off. That is why he had reached the Khanuri border two days ago with 5-6 people from the village in support of the movement and had been there ever since.

Shubkaran's cousin Nirbhai Singh and farmer leader Kaka Singh Kotra demanded from the Punjab government and the central government that Shubkaran's family should be compensated Rs 10 lakh each. Also, whatever debt his family has, should be forgiven. Farmer leaders also demanded that one of Shubkaran's sisters be given a government job.
