More than a month after the Punjab and Haryana High Court issued a notice of motion to MLA Amrinder Singh Raja Warring and called for action taken report in a case related to holding of a function at Gidderbaha, the state counsel has been directed to specify whether the allegations against him and another respondent were looked into by joining them in investigation.

An FIR in the matter has been registered under the provisions of the Epidemic Diseases Act.

"The state counsel is directed to file a detailed affidavit as to whether the allegations against the two respondents have been inquired into properly by joining them with the investigation," Justice HS Madaan asserted.

The state counsel was also asked to specify whether the petitioner-complainant was asked to produce the evidence available with him during investigation.

The direction came after reply by way of an affidavit by Muktsar Deputy Commissioner MK Aravind, along with a status report by Gidderbaha Deputy Superintendent of Police was taken on record. Justice Madaan asserted the status report filed was quite vague in certain aspects, especially with regard to Raja Warring and another respondent.

The matter was brought to the High Court's notice after a petition was filed against the state of Punjab, Director-General of Police, Raja Warring and seven other respondents by Gurmeet Singh Mann through counsel AS Kler.

He was seeking directions to the DGP and other official respondents to "fairly investigate" the FIR registered on July 14 under Sections 188, 269, 270, and 271 of the IPC and Section 3 of the Epidemic Diseases Act at the Gidderbaha police station in Muktsar district.
