Sangrur, Might 10

The Sangrur police have booked a Superintendent of Police (SP) and his reader for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 3 lakh to assist an accused in a loss of life case.

The reader has been arrested whereas the SP, posted in Sangrur’s Punjab Bureau of Investigation (PBI) wing, is absconding. In the meantime, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) has shaped a Particular Investigation Staff (SIT) to nab the SP.

On February 27 this yr, a lady named Parmjit Kaur had accused her husband Gurmej Singh and different family members of setting her on hearth in Mandvi village. She had suffered severe burn accidents within the incident. On her criticism, the Khanauri police had registered a case below Sections 307, 326A, 148 and 149 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in opposition to Gurmej, Balwinder Kaur, Bhupinder Singh, Kamaljit Kaur and Shaminder Kaur.

“SP Karanveer Singh by his reader ASI Davinder Singh took Rs 3 lakh from the accused to assist them. However after the loss of life of Parmjit on April 8, it turned a homicide case and the police added Part 302 of the IPC to the FIR. Then the accused began alleging that the SP and the reader didn’t assist them even after taking the cash,” stated Mandeep Sidhu, Sangrur SSP.

After getting the criticism, the SSP shaped a SIT headed by SP (Investigation) Palwinder Singh Cheema and registered a case below Part 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act-2018 in opposition to Karanveer on the Sangrur Metropolis 1 police station final evening.

“ASI Davinder Singh has been arrested whereas raids are on to nab the SP,” the SSP added. In the meantime, Sidhu has shaped one other SIT headed by Sangrur SP (Headquarter) Jasbir Singh to arrest the SP.
