Mohali, September 21

After the Supreme Court issued directions to former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini to join investigation six days ago, the special investigating team (SIT) probing the Balwant Singh Multani murder case today asked him to join investigation on September 23.

Unable to find Saini at his Chandigarh residence, the SIT pasted the notice outside the house and gave the copy to his counsels.

The notice read: “Saini is summoned to reach Mataur police station in Mohali at 11 am on September 23, 2020, to join investigation.”

Saini was given relief by the SC on September 15 by giving interim stay on his arrest at the hands of the Punjab Police in the Multani murder case and directed him to cooperate and join SIT investigation.

According to sources, the Punjab Police said they were not aware of Saini coming out of the hiding to make himself available for the investigation.

Multani, a junior engineer with the Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Corporation, was allegedly picked up by the police in December 1991 after a terror attack on Saini that left three policemen dead. Saini was injured in the attack.
