Chandigarh, October 14

More than a fortnight after the Punjab and Haryana High Court ordered the issuance of a week's notice in case former top cop Sumedh Singh Saini was to be arrested "in any case pertaining to any incident during his entire service", the state government today filed a 360-page reply claiming his plea was liable to be dismissed "given the deliberate and wilful suppression of material facts and attempt to mislead the court.

Elaborating, the state submitted the prayer for the transfer of investigation in the Multani case to the CBI, also made in the present petition, was there in another petition. Its filing and pendency has been wilfully and deliberately suppressed.

"The applicant's conduct disentitles him from seeking any protection of the nature sought...," the reply added. The case will now come up for hearing on November 3.

In his earlier order, Justice Arun Kumar Tyagi had made it clear that the only exception would be the Multani case registered by the Punjab Police on May 6.
