Chandigarh, September 14

Claiming to have been implicated in multiple criminal cases by the Punjab Police following “vendetta nurtured by certain individuals and high-ups”, Kulpreet Singh aka Neeta Deol has moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court expressing apprehensions of “elimination in a fake encounter or staged managed incident”. Deol was an accused in Nabha jailbreak case.

In his petition against the state of Punjab and other respondents through counsel R. Kartikeya for protection of life and liberty from attempts made by the “jail authorities and other police officials to eliminate” him. Kartikeya submitted on the petitioner’s behalf that DSP Jaskirat Singh of the organised crime control unit of the Punjab Police visited the Nabha jail. The petitioner was then asked to appear in Deputy Superintendent of Jail Inderjeet Kahlon’s office and was threatened to be implicated in criminal cases.

The same day, a team of Punjab Police officials accompanied by Kahlon proceeded towards his barrack and recklessly assaulted the petitioner. Despite request, he was deprived of basic medical aid, Kartikeya submitted. Another officer visited the barrack the same night and suggested projecting the entire incident as an attempt made by the petitioner to kill himself and to register an FIR alleging attempt to suicide, the counsel said. — TNS
