The last surviving sister of Bhagat Singh, Bibi Prakash Kaur, 93, who lived with her son Rupinder Singh in Toronto, Canada, passed away on Bhagat Singh’s birth anniversary, September 28. Hours before she died, Aam Aadmi Party activists in Canada visited her, though she was in no condition to respond. She had been bedridden for the last seven years. Her husband Harbans Singh died more than a decade ago. Bibi Prakash Kaur was in the news during the days of terror in Punjab, when she fought for justice after her daughter’s brother-in-law was killed in an encounter; the case became an issue in Punjab.
