Chandigarh, August 20

In the disapperance case of Balwant Singh Multani, the two former UT cops who have turned approvers recorded their statement before the Judicial Magistrate-cum-Duty Magistrate at a Mohali court today.

Two days ago, the former UT cops, Inspector Jagir Singh and Assistant Sub Inspector Kuldeep Singh, had moved court to turn approvers and were pardoned in the case, involving former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini.

Before getting their statements recorded, the Judicial Magistrate asked the two cops whether there was any pressure on them to turn approvers. They said it was their own decision.

Now, the SIT is all set to add Section 302 of the IPC to the FIR registered against the former DGP and others at Mataur police station in the alleged disappearance of former CITCO employee Multani. The case is expected to be taken up tomorrow.

As per the court orders, the SIT will have to give prior notice to Saini after adding Section 302 to the FIR. Saini is out on bail in the case.
