Mohali, September 27

A special investigation team (SIT) has issued summons to former DGP Sumedh Singh Saini to appear before it at Mataur police station at 11 am on Monday in connection with the alleged kidnapping and murder of Balwant Singh Multani.

The summons were pasted outside Saini’s houses in Chandigarh and Delhi after he wasn’t fount there. Sources in the SIT said copies of the summons were also sent to his counsels Himmat Singh Deol and HS Dhanoa over WhatsApp.

Accompanied by his counsel, Saini had appeared before the SIT on September 25 to join the investigations. However, the sources said he was told the SIT would issue summons and ask him to join the investigations.

The Supreme Court had granted anticipatory bail to Saini in the case on September 15 and directed him to join investigations with the SIT.

The SIT had added Section 302 (murder) of the IPC to the FIR registered against him after two co-accused turned approvers and deposed against Saini. They claimed to have witnessed Multani’s torture at the Sector 17 police station.

Earlier, former Inspector Jagir Singh and ASI Kuldep Singh, co-accused, turned approvers and were granted pardon in the case. Another person who was in the lockup along with Multani also turned an approver.
