The Punjab Police today moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court, alleging that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) was intentionally not supplying the requisite documents available with it in a kidnapping and murder case against the state's former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini.

The statement of accused-turned-approver Inspector Jagir Singh on the alleged torture of "missing" CITCO employee Balwant Singh Multani, was annexed along with the application.

The plea, requesting the court to take on record the statement and other documents, is scheduled to come up for hearing on Wednesday, along with a petition filed by Saini for declaring "non-est" the probe against him.

Meanwhile, an application filed by Inspector Rajiv Kumar, SHO of Mataur police station in Mohali, stated that the CBI was intentionally not supplying the requisite documents was apparent from the order passed by the CBI Court at Chandigarh on July 21. The order, among other things, stated that the CBI was completely silent about the status of the documents received by it from the High Court in a sealed cover. The court said the investigation agency, in its written reply, nowhere denied receiving the documents, but it did bring out a clear picture in writing regarding the current status of the documents, despite taking sufficient time from the court. The application added the statements of the co-accused, Jagir Singh and Kuldeep Singh, granted pardon, recorded by the court of the Duty Magistrate under orders of the CJM, Mohali, on August 20.

As the evidence on record disclosed commission of offence under Section 302 lPC, an application was filed before the Mohali Duty Magistrate/Judicial Magistrate seeking permission to add the offence. The requisite permission was granted vide an order dated August 21.
