Punjab Drug Case Breaking: 3 out of 4 sealed reports opened by HC; notices to be issued to senior cops
Chandigarh, March 28, 2023: The Punjab and Haryana High Court has opened three out of four sealed covered reports in the Punjab drug case on Tuesday.
Notice to be issued former DGPs Dinkar Gupta and Siddharth Chattopadhyay to present their side on the next hearing.
Giving information in this case, Advocate Navkiran Singh said that on 23.5.2018, Justice Suryakant had closed these four reports after reading the reports, for which he had filed an application in 2022. He said that three of the 4 reports have been opened today, which have now become public, while the fourth report has been read and closed by the judge.
He said that Dinkar Gupta's lawyer had also appeared in the High Court and the court had also asked Siddharth Chattopadhyay to appear and defend his case.
"Our main issue is to punish the policemen who are involved. Until the police crackdown on drugs, these drugs cannot be eradicated," he added.
He also said that the High Court has sought a status report on the case against Siddharth Chattopadhyay.
He said that the High Court has asked the Punjab government to take action in the case of the three reports and now it is the responsibility of the Punjab government to take action.
