Mohali, July 2

The District Sessions Court, Mohali, today allowed the application seeking transfer of the case, in which former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini is the main accused, from the court of Additional District and Sessions Court Monika Goyal to the court of ADJ Rajnish Garg.

District and Sessions Judge Rajinder Singh Rai has now asked the prosecution and the defense to appear before ADJ Rajnish Garg's court on July 6 to continue hearing the case.

The decision on quashing Saini's anticipatory bail under Section 302 of the IPC will also come up for hearing in the court of ADJ Garg.

The application for transfer of the case was filed after ADJ Monika Goyal's court allowed interim bail to the former DGP in anticipation of SIT adding Section 302 to the earlier FIR.

Advocate Sartej Singh Narula, special public persecutor, had argued in the previous hearing that ADJ Goyal's court had ignored the facts and gravity of the offense while discussing the merits of the case and the interim bail had been granted in a blanket manner.

He said they would now present the statement of eye witness Gursharan Kaur Mann, which she recorded under Section 161 of the CrPC, corroborating illegal detention and inhuman torture of former CITCO employee Balwant Singh Mulatani at the hands of Saini, while seeking cancelation of the interim bail granted to the former DGP. — TNS
