Issue of stripping three persons by Khanna Police
High Court orders DGP to initiate a time bound enquiry
Chandigarh, May 22, 2020 : The Punjab and Haryana High Court has ordered Punjab DGP to constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe allegations about stripping of three persons and then making their video and making it viral by Khanna Police.
During hearing of the petition on the matter, the High Court Single Member bench made several comments against the police. It said that it feels ashamed of the fact that such situation still exists here where the police is working on behest of vested interests. It said that though the Punjab DGP had directed IG Ludhiana Jaskaran Singh to probe the matter but it seems that he has done nothing in this regard.
Hearing the matter Justice Nirmaljit Kaur directed the Punjab DGP to constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the issue and ensure that this enquiry is completed within a stipulated time. It also directed that this enquiry report along with action taken report should be tabled before the High Court on the next date of hearing on July 8, 2020.
