Five UK doctors state Avtar Singh Khanda could not have been poisoned

British doctors and academics have confirmed that acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), the sudden illness that Sikh separatist leader Avtar Singh Khanda died of at 35, can be aggressive and not be triggered through poisoning.

Charles Craddock, academic director of the Centre for clinical haematology at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, stated that AML is one of the most common blood cancers in adults and one of the most challenging to treat. He said patients could quickly deteriorate and develop fatal complications within hours or days, as Khanda did.

Khanda was a close friend of Amritpal Singh and a leading Khalistan extremist in the UK.

The podcast also features one of several British Sikh men who were given Osman (threat to life) notices by the UK police. The man told BBC Sounds he believes he was given the notice because he was being targeted by Sikh extremists (Khalistanis) in the UK, and not by India.

The man said: “I am 70% certain this threat has come from the Sikh extremists we had a run-in with. They are pushing this particular narrative that it is all very much India, India, India, but the one thing with our community is that maybe there is an issue amongst us.”
