Mohali, October 26

Former Punjab DGP Sumedh Saini appeared before a special investigation team (SIT) at the Mataur police station here this morning. He was questioned for nearly two hours after which he emerged from the police station around 1.30 pm.

Before leaving the police station, Saini responded to media's queries, saying: "I will speak at the right time."

The SIT had earlier served notice on Saini, asking him to appear at the Mataur police station on October 26.

The former Director General of Police had last appeared before the SIT on September 28. He, however, failed to appear before the police on September 30. Saini, dressed in a blue blazer, white shirt and grey pants, was accompanied by his counsels, who waited in another room during his questioning.

On September 15, the Supreme Court had granted relief to Saini by giving interim stay on his arrest by the Punjab Police and directed him to join investigation with the SIT.

The former DGP is facing charges of murder in case of former CITCO employee Balwant Singh Multani, son of former IAS officer Darshan Singh Multani. Saini was then serving as the Chandigarh SSP in 1991. In August, Saini was booked by the Mohali police under Section 302 (murder) of the IPC.
