Chandigarh, September 8
The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini within the alleged kidnapping and homicide case of Balwant Singh Multani.
On Monday, too, Punjab’s former Director General of Police (DGP) Sumedh Singh Saini couldn’t get aid from the Punjab and Haryana High Court within the three-decade-old case.
The Mohali Police and the Special Operations Group (SOG) had raided Saini’s Sector-20 home on August 29. Mohali DSP (Detective) Bikramjit Singh had led the raid however Saini was not discovered at residence.
Sumedh Singh Saini and 6 different cops have been booked in a 29-year-old case of the alleged abduction, torture and stage-managed elimination of Balwant Singh Multani, son of former IAS officer Darshan Singh Multani.
Balwant, the sufferer, was accused of finishing up an assault on Saini when he was the Chandigarh SSP on December 11, 1991. He, together with Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar — a convict in a Delhi bomb blast case — and two others, was booked however the police later claimed that Balwant escaped from the custody of Qadian (Gurdaspur) police.
