Shingara Singh (who died in 2006 when reputedly aged well over 100) lived through Partition and by his own account was part of a group nicknamed the 'crows' which harried and attacked Muslim refugees in Punjab. He was a Jat Sikh nad very much the patriarch of his farming family. I interviewed him in a village outside Amritsar on 19 March 1997 with Asit Jolly translation to and from Punjabi.
Shingara Singh also recounted that he had been present at the Jallianwala Bagh massacre of 1919, and says he was then 19. He talks briefly about this before moving on to his memories of Partition.
