NBW against former SHO in Multani case

Mohali, October 20

A Mohali court has issued non-bailable arrest warrants against former station house officer (SHO) and then Inspector Kanwal Inderpal Singh in the Balwant Singh Multani abduction and murder case. The court had directed the special investigation team (SIT) to arrest the accused and produce him in the court by October 19.

Mataur police station SHO Rajiv Kumar had moved an application for issuing open warrants against the accused, who was the investigation officer in the case 29 years ago.

Special public prosecutor Sartej Singh Narula submitted that the accused was nominated in a May 6 FIR and the police had raided his residence thrice to arrest him but was not found there. His family also did not disclose his whereabouts.

During the raids, it came to the fore that the accused had left India and was presently in Canada. The counsel placed on record the traveling details of the accused as per which he had boarded the flight to Canada on October 9.

He further said for the purpose of extradition proceedings against the accused, open warrants be issued. The court observed as per the arguments addressed and documents placed on record, it was apparent the accused in spite of the fact that an FIR was registered against him, chose to leave India without informing the investigation agency or taking permission from the court.

In the present case, the agency would not be able to execute arrest of the accused without getting his extradition, for which court warrants would be required, it said.

The public prosecutor said the then inspector had been accused of executing the orders of then SSP Sumedh Singh Saini in his capacity as the Sector 17 SHO and having played a significant role in the disappearance and elimination of former CITCO junior engineer Multani. — TNS
