New Delhi, September 11
As the Punjab Police raided hideouts seeking former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini, an accused within the 1991 Balwant Singh Multani homicide case, he has moved the Supreme Court for anticipatory bail to keep away from his arrest.
The Punjab Police too have filed a caveat to pre-empt Saini from getting any ex-parte reduction from the highest courtroom which is more likely to take up his plea subsequent week. Multani, a JE with with CITCO, was allegedly picked up by the police in December 1991 after a terror assault on Saini.
In May this 12 months, the previous DGP and 6 others have been booked by the Mohali police for Multani’s ‘kidnapping’. The homicide cost was added in August after two of the accused cops spilled the beans.
Saini can be dealing with trial in a Special CBI courtroom in Delhi for the alleged abduction of businessman Vinod Kumar, his brother-in-law Ashok Kumar and their driver. — TNS
