Chandigarh, July 22

The Punjab and Haryana High Court today stayed the arrest of SP Baljit Singh in the Kotkapura police firing case registered in connection with the sacrilege incidents. The order by Justice Tejinder Singh Dhindsa will remain in force at least till the next date of hearing in the matter.

Baljit Singh had moved the High Court through senior advocate APS Deol and counsel HS Deol for pre-arrest bail in 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 the provisions of the Arms Act and Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act.

The concession of pre-arrest bail was also sought for the 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 FIR dated August 7, 2018, registered at Kotkapura police station against the petitioner and other accused.

In an attempt to substantiate such assertion, the counsel adverted to the final investigation report under Section 173 of the CrPC pertaining to August 2018 FIR.

Issuing notice of motion, Justice Dhindsa asserted: "Arrest of the petitioner is stayed till the next date of hearing". The case will now come up for hearing on July 27.
