High Court directs state to submit FIR details against police officers

Share This

Chandigarh, September 5

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has asked for details of FIRs registered against all serving police officers in the State of Punjab, including their nature and status. Justice Anupinder Singh Grewal has also asked the State, through its home secretary, to specify the current posting of the officers.

The direction by Justice Grewal came after the Bench was told a large number of police officers facing criminal cases were still in service. Justice Grewal was hearing a petition filed against the State of Punjab and other respondents by Surjit Singh, dismissed from service by Moga Senior Superintendent of Police.

Appearing before the Bench through videoconferencing, his counsel submitted the impugned order of dismissal from service were passed without taking into consideration another order passed by an Inspector-General of Police, whereby the petitioner had been reinstated in service after the registration of an FIR against him. — TNS
