Mohali, July 10

A local court on Friday dismissed the interim bail application of former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini, terming it pre-mature. Earlier, the bail was given to him in anticipation of adding Section 302 of the IPC to previous FIR in the disappearance of CITCO employee Balwant Singh Multani case.

However, the court while giving relief to the former DGP, directed the police to give three-day notice to Saini in case Section 302 or any other criminal sections was to be added to the FIR.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Rajnish Garg pronounced the orders after the case proceedings were transferred to the said court by District and Sessions Judge Rajinder Singh Rai on July 2.

After today's hearing, Narula said they were satisfied as now they would contest the anticipatory bail, if applied for, after the police adds Section 302 or any other criminal charges in the FIR against Saini.

The Mohali police had constituted an SIT, headed by SP Harmandep Singh Hans, along with DSP Bikramjit Singh Brar and Mataur SHO Inspector Rajiv Kumar, to probe the case.

An FIR was registered afresh against the former DGP at Mataur police station, accusing him of abduction of Balwant Singh Multani, following the complaint of his brother Palwinder on May 6, after which the DGP moved court seeking anticipatory bail.
