Punjab and Haryana High Court notice to MLA over harassment

Share This

Chandigarh, September 28

Taking up a petition alleging harassment at the behest of Ferozepur City MLA Parminder Singh Pinki, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has made him a respondent in the matter before putting him on notice.

The notice by Justice Jitendra Chauhan came on a contempt petition filed against a police official by Sukhwinder Singh through counsel KB Raheja. The petitioner contended his brother Iqbal Singh Mallan was the senior vice-president of the SAD, while Pinki was elected on the Congress ticket.

Pinki was inimical with the petitioner's family as they owed allegiance to the Akalis and supported the party in the local election. In order to settle a score with the petitioner and his family, Pinki started harassing them through the police.

Raheja referred to certain documents to contend the petitioner was arrested from his house without any FIR against him on that day. "The petitioner is being harassed at the asking of said local MLA," he added. The case will now come up on September 30. — TNS
