Dear Sir,

A belated response to "Satpal Ram is innocent" by Pandit G, pub-
lished in your September 22 issue. Is this the same Satpal Ram 
who stabbed his white working class victim in the back with a 
flick knife after asking him "Don't you like Paki music?", and as 
he lay mortally wounded asked "Is he dead?" and when told "No" 
replied "Well he's fucking gonna be."

Is this the same Satpal Ram who attended a local hospital shortly 
after the knifing where he sought medical treatment after giving 
a false name, and who was so drunk and abusive that a doctor 
couldn't treat him until he had calmed down, whereupon he inser-
ted three stitches in a small cut in his cheek?

I just wondered, because there is nothing in either of the Court 
of Appeal judgments from 1989 and 1995, nor in the pathologist's 
report on Clarke Pearce to indicate this is indeed the case.

Yours sincerely,
A Baron

Unsurprisingly, this letter went unanswered.
