Police have registered the FIR under sections of prevention of corruption Act 1988, 52 A prisons Act and of Disaster Management Act 2005.
“We have registered the FIR against SP Balwinder Singh, DSP Amar Singh and warden Gurpartap Singh. Further investigations are on,” said Pritpal Singh SHO Sangrur city-1.
