SPECIAL JUDGE ISSUES NOTICE TO CBI AND DIG IN A GRAFT CASE WHERE SHO IS ACCUSED
Special court judge Sushil Kumar issued a notice to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and directed Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Chandigarh police to submit a reply regarding “sanction to prosecute” suspended SHO Jaswinder Kaur in Rs. 2 lakh graft caseby July 17. Special Court took cognizance of the applications filed by financier Prem Singh Bisht in 2019 to declare SHO Jaswinder Kaur as accused and in application filed in February 2020 he stated that he was being pressurized by the SHO, the court had directed CBI to place before the sanctioning authority (SSP, Chandigarh) all evidence so that the authority could apply its own mind whether to give sanction for prosecution or not.
In October 2017, a trap was laid by CBI on the complaint of Prem Singh Bisht in which he alleged that sub-inspector (SI) Mohan Singh of Sector 31 police station had demanded Rs. 9 lakh from him to withdraw the names of his employees from an attempt to murder FIR. He also alleged that the SI had told him that the Rs. 8 lakh were for SHO Jaswinder Kaur and Rs. 1 lakh for him. CBI had arrested the SI while accepting Rs. 2 lakh bribe and the case was closed against Kaur as the agency could not find any evidence to implicate her. However, in the CBI court, the complainant had said that he was taken to SHO Kaur by SI Mohan Singh at Old Car Bazaar in Hallo Majra, where a meeting had taken place and SHO demanded money.
Kaur has been evading arrest since her suspension and removal as Manimajra SHO due to an accusation in another graft case of Rs. 5 lakhs.
