Mohali, September 12

A local court issued an arrest warrant against former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini in the alleged kidnapping and murder case of Balwant Singh Multani here today.

Special public prosecutor Sartej Singh Narula said in the absence of the arrest warrant, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) was facing hurdles in getting assistance from the police of other states in the search and arrest of the accused.

The SIT moved an application before Duty Magistrate Ravtesh Inderjit Singh for issuance of the arrest warrant against the former DGP who is evading arrest in the case.

In the application, the SIT submitted that there was no stay regarding the arrest of the accused in the case and anticipatory bail application moved by the accused before the High Court had already been dismissed.

The SIT stated that daily diary reports (DDR) had been registered at police station, Hauz Khas, South Delhi; police station, Sadar, Shimla; police chowki, Pangana in Mandi; police station, North, Chandigarh; police station, Sector 19, Chandigarh; and police station, Tanda, near Hoshiarpur.

"Perusal of the DDRs specifically reveals that due to lack of an arrest warrant, there is an obstacle in getting assistance from the police at various police stations by the raiding police party from Mohali. Therefore, the application is allowed for facilitating arrest of the accused," observed the court in its order and directed the SIT to arrest the accused and produced him before the court on September 25.
