Mohali, August 27

The Court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Rajnish Garg today reserved the order on the anticipatory bail application filed by former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini in the alleged kidnapping and murder of Balwant Singh Multani for August 29.

Saini’s counsel APS Deol and Harneet Singh Oberoi had filed an anticipatory bail application in the court on Monday to avoid his arrest after a local court allowed the Punjab Police to add murder charge against him to the FIR on August 21.

After hearing the arguments in the case today, the judge ordered: “Now for remaining arguments, if any, and orders to come up on August 29.” However, no order on interim stay on the arrest of Saini has been passed by the court.

While hearing the anticipatory bail application on August 25, Duty Magistrate had stayed the arrest of the DGP Saini for two days, and adjourned the matter for August 27 to be heard on merits in the designated court of Additional District and Sessions judge (ADJ) Rajnish Garg.

Saini is apprehending arrest in the alleged kidnapping and murder case of Balwant Singh Multani after the Special Investigation Team (SIT) added Section 302 of the IPC to the FIR registered against Saini when two co-accused turned approvers and deposed against Saini of being eyewitness to the alleged inhumane torture given to Multani at Sector 17 police station. — TNS
