New Delhi: Mass murderer and infamous former Punjab Police DGP KPS Gill died in a hospital in New Delhi on Friday. He was 82.
As per Hindustan Times, Gill was admitted to the hospital on May 18 under the care of Dr DS Rana, head of the department of nephrology. He breathed his last at 2:55pm at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.
“He was suffering from end stage kidney failure and significant ischemic heart disease. Gill had been recovering from peritonitis but died of a sudden cardiac arrest caused by cardiac arrhythmia,” Dr Rana said.
Gill retired as an Indian Police Services (IPS) in 1995 and was known for mass killings of Sikhs in Punjab. He remained DGP for two terms — between 1988 and 1990 and again from 1991 until his retirement.
He has been implicated in the mass murder of thousands and maintenance of the culture of impunity and even torturing and murdering those same human rights fighters that attempted to expose his heinous crimes.
