Batala, September 1

The police have dismissed from service all five policemen involved in the murder of Gurmail Singh, alias Pappy, on August 30. The five cops were dismissed under Article 311 of the Constitution.

The Batala police had arrested the cops, along with a local, after they had shot dead Gurmail Singh who is also the brother-in-law of Excise Inspector Amarpreet Kaur.

Those dismissed are ASIs Ranjit Singh and Baljit Singh, both posted in Amritsar city traffic, Head Constables Avtar Singh and Balkar Singh, and Surinder Singh, a cop deployed in VIP security wing.

A spokesperson said the police personnel were dismissed from service for grave misconduct, involvement in criminal acts, tarnishing the image of the Police Department and lowering the morale of the police during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Batala SSP Rachpal Singh said a local court had sent the accused on a three-day police remand till September 3.

"I visited the family of Gurmail Singh today and assured them all help. I also told them that there will be absolutely no laxity in investigating the case," he said. — TNS
