CBI team of Sangrur arrested Bhagwan Singh red-handed with the bribe amount of Rs. 1 lakh. An amount of Rs. 2 lakh was already paid earlier. JaswinderKaur had not been arrested till the filing of the report.

JaswinderKaur who did not turn up to investigation when summoned by CBI in their headquarters, tried to create a false evidence in the shape of a DDR entry to show she had joined investigations. The investigating agency submitted before the court that Jaswinder made a false Daily Diary Register entry at the Manimajra police station on June 30, saying that she had returned from the CBI office. “The reality is that she has been on the run since June 30 and her phone is also switched off,” the CBI stated, adding that letters have been sent to senior officers of Chandigarh police, asking them to direct her to join investigation. “It has been informed that she has been suspended on account of the false DDR entry,” CBI told the court. CBI also told the court that Jaswinder was “deliberately avoiding joining investigation to avoid confrontation with the other accused Bhagwan Singh.”
