Chandigarh, July 27

The Punjab and Haryana High Court today directed Superintendent of Police Baljit Singh to join investigation as and when asked to. The direction came as Justice Anil Kshetarpal granted him interim bail in the Kotkapura police firing case registered in connection with sacrilege incidents.

Baljit had moved the high court through senior advocate APS Deol and counsel HS Deol for pre-arrest bail in an FIR dated October 14, 2015, registered for attempt to murder and other offences under Sections 307, 353, 332, 323, 382, 435, 283, 120-B, 148 and 149 of the IPC along with provisions of the Arms Act and the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act.

The concession of pre-arrest bail was also sought for newly added offences vide daily diary report dated June 24 under Sections 467 and 409 of the IPC and another report dated July 11 under section 195 and 120-B of the IPC at Kotkapura city police station.

One of the contentions raised by the senior counsel was that the entire gamut of allegations had already been gone into pursuant to registration of another FIR dated August 7, 2018 at Kotkapura police station. — TNS
