Faridkot, September 10

Inspector General of Police Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh today appeared in the court of District and Sessions Judge, Faridkot, to seek pardon for Inspector Pardeep Singh, a prime accused in the Behbal Kalan firing case, to make him an approver.

The move reportedly aims at strengthening the prosecution case against the main culprits.

Resham Singh, brother of one of the deceased in the firing, and former SSP Charanjit Singh Sharma, one of the key accused, are opposing the SIT move. The SIT claimed in the court that allowing an accused turn approver in a criminal case was a decision to be taken by the investigating agency, prosecution and the court so as to strengthen the case. So, neither Resham Singh nor the other accused in the case has the right to raise any objection. A day after the SIT moved the court seeking pardon for Pardeep Singh, the duty magistrate had recorded his statement.

Pardeep has named a DGP-rank officer and a senior Akali leader who allegedly played role in the police firing at Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan on October 14, 2015. — TNS
