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 said on Sunday.

“Till 1969, the pistol had been lying at the Punjab 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 at Khatkar Kalan.
