The Sadar police have booked a truck operator for allegedly threatening the Gidderbaha SDM (who recently held the additional charge of Muktsar SDM) and seeking undue favour from him in a land dispute case.

As per the FIR, truck operator Nirbhai Singh asked SDM Om Parkash to give relief in a land dispute case and used foul language. Nirbhai later allegedly threatened him over the phone. A case under Sections 186 (obstruct public servant in discharge of duty), 189 (threat of injury to public servant), 294 (obscene acts), 384 (extortion), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 511 (offences punishable with life imprisonment) of the IPC has been registered. The accused, a leader of the truck operators, is yet to be arrested.

The SDM said: "I was holding the additional charge of Muktsar SDM till a few days ago and truck operator Nirbhai Singh approached me, seeking relief in a land dispute case.

"The land belongs to some individuals and the matter is pending in the SDM court. When I told him the matter would be heard as per its merits, he used foul language and even sent some abusive messages on my cell phone while threatening me. I have lodged a complaint with the police."
