Mohali, June 18

The anticipatory bail of former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini, an accused in the abduction and murder of Balwant Singh Multani, was extended by the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge in Mohali.

However, the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Monika Goyal did not pass any further orders in the case and adjourned the case for June 25.

During resumed hearing on Thursday, Sartej Singh Narula, special public persecutor appointed by the state against Saini in alleged disappearance of former CITCO employee Balwant Singh Multani, prayed before the court making proprietary demand not to hear the case as the application to transfer the case was pending before the court of District and Sessions Judge.

Narula further argued that anticipatory bail granted to Saini on murder charges without imposition of Section 302 of the IPC in the FIR was also not maintainable.

However, when the court questioned prosecution to produce any record if stay has been granted for extending the anticipatory bail period by any of the higher court in the matter, the prosecution said no stay had been granted till date. After that the court extended the anticipatory bail time period till June 25.

On June 15 District and Sessions Judge Rajinder Singh Rai had deferred the hearing on an application filed by Palwinder Singh Multani, brother of Balwant Singh Multani, seeking transfer of the case from the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADJ) Monika Goyal till June 23. — TNS
