Tarn Taran, September 4

Sub-Inspector (SI) Baldev Singh, who was thrashed by villagers in the border town of Chogawan in Amritsar last year, has been booked on corruption charges by the local city police station.

On the complaint of Rishu, alias Bawa Singh, a resident of local Fatehchak (Gurdwara Lakir Sahib) locality, a case has been registered under Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Charges (Amendment) Act, 2018. The Punjab and Haryana High Court has issued instructions in this regard.

The complainant had told the High Court that the Sub-Inspector had withdrawn Rs 2 lakh from his HDFC Bank account.

At the time when the incident happened, the accused was posted at the Kacha Pakka police station in Tarn Taran district.

The SI had gone to Chogawan to arrest heroin smugglers, but was thrashed by the residents there. He was accompanied by four other policemen, who hadn't intervened to help him.

Subsequently, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh had ordered to dismiss all four policemen.

SSP Dhruman H Nimbale said according to the instructions of the Supreme Court, Baldev Singh would be involved in the investigation process, and then the future course of action would be decided. — OC
