HC Deb 19 March 1928 vol 215 c3

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is now in a position to furnish particulars in regard to the arrest of Sirdar Diwan Singh, editor and proprietor of the weekly paper, Rayasat, at the request of the Patiala Durbar?


Mr. Diwan Singh was arrested by the Delhi Police on a written accusation by the Patiala Police, but the magistrate immediately released him on bail, and a subsequent application for his extradition by the Patiala Durbar was refused. The circumstances have been inquired into by the Government of India, and my Noble Friend sees no reason for any action on his part.
