The Mohali district court today reserved its order on former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini's anticipatory bail plea till Monday.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Monika Goyal after hearing the arguments reserved the order, thus denying any relief to Saini till Monday in a fresh FIR registered against him in a 29-year- old abduction case.

Appearing for Saini, counsel APS Deol argued that the FIR registered in the matter after 29 years was not maintainable and that the FIR

registered in the case was dismissed by the apex court in 2011. He maintained that there was a bar on maintainability of the case filed twice.

Pardeep Virk, counsel for complainant Palwinder Singh Multani, argued that the Supreme Court, while quashing the FIR registered by the CBI nine years ago, had made it clear that recourse to fresh proceedings could be taken, if permissible in law. For fresh investigation, Saini's custodial interrogation was a must as two investigating officers had already died, he said.

Punjab today argued that Saini's custodial interrogation in the 1991 case was a must.
