Faridkot, July 21

The anticipatory bail plea of former Kotkapura SHO Gurdeep Singh Pandher, who is one of the prime accused in the 2015 Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan police firing cases, became infructuous after his arrest by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the court of Judicial Magistrate today.

Sent to two-day police remand

  • The SIT says former SHO Gurdeep Pandher had played a key role in hatching a conspiracy in Behbal Kalan firing incident
  • The court of Judicial Magistrate has sent Pandher to two-day police remand

At a time when counsel of Pandher was pleading for his anticipatory bail in the court of District and Sessions Judge, Faridkot, in the Behbal Kalan firing case, the SIT arrested him after he was brought on production warrant in the court of Judicial Magistrate.

On July 15, the SIT had nominated Pandher as an accused in the Behbal Kalan firing incident, which took place on October 14, 2015. At present, Pandher is lodged in a jail after he was arrested by the SIT on June 25 in the 2015 Kotkapura firing incident.

The SIT claimed that Pander had played a key role in hatching a conspiracy in the Behbal Kalan firing incident along with other cops. The court of Judicial Magistrate sent Pandher to two-day police remand.

The SIT has also procured arrest warrant of former Kotkapura Deputy Superintendent of Police Baljit Singh. Last week, Baljit had moved anticipatory bail plea in the District and Sessions Court, which was dismissed.

Earlier, Baljit had procured bail in the Kotkapura firing case, but later the SIT had added more charges in the FIR, including tampering with evidence. — TNS
