A chargesheet documented in the court by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) testing the 2015 heresy cases and police activity from there on amid the Akali-BJP rule in Punjab has said that episodes of tainting of Guru Granth Sahib were “a pre-arranged craftsmanship of then vice president serve Sukhbir Singh Badal, at that point chief general of police Sumedh Singh Saini and Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda”.
This exciting charge, liable to make crisp political swells in Punjab, frames a piece of the chargesheet, otherwise called challan, documented by overseer general of police Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh in a Faridkot court on Tuesday (May 28) against five police authorities and a previous Akali MLA for the situation identified with terminating on Sikh nonconformists in Kotkapura.
This is the first occasion when that the SIT, set up by the Amarinder Singh-drove Congress government on the Punjab and Haryana high court’s course, has stuck the onus of heresy on Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal, Saini and the dera. ADGP Parbodh Kumar is the leader of the SIT, while Kunwar Vijay Partap, IG Arun Pal Singh, Kapurthala SSP Satinder Pal Singh and PPS officer Bhupinder Singh are its individuals. The chargesheet, a duplicate which is with HT, has connected the blasphemy cases and a “pre-arranged trick” to exchange of then state insight boss Hardeep Dhillon.
“Dhillon, an officer surely understood for his fitness and involvement in Intelligence wing was exchanged as ADGP insight on October 10, 2015, and in his place, a much junior officer of DIG rank, RK Jaiswal was solicited to take care of the work from knowledge wing. It is appropriate to make reference to here that there were three senior officers of ADGP/DGP rank, who were qualified and accessible for this posting. Jaiswal was likewise offered bearings to answer to Punjab DGP Sumedh Saini,” says the chargesheet.
The SIT claims that it involves record that a progression of occurrences of blasphemy of Guru Granth Sahib happened not long after Dhillon’s exchange with first episode saw at Bargari on October 12, 2015. Around 15 instances of heresy of Guru Granth Sahib were enlisted between October 10 to October 30 in Punjab, says the chargesheet.
“Around then, Sukhbir Badal was the home pastor. Amid addressing by the SIT, he was approached to disclose the conditions prompting ouster of a senior cop from the post of insight boss and substitution by a DIG rank officer, however he couldn’t give any attractive answer and advised to ask then DGP. Saini was likewise posed a similar inquiry. In any case, he couldn’t give any palatable answer either and told that at that point home priest could more readily clarify it,” the chargesheet peruses.
The SIT claims that the complicity of the exchange of knowledge boss by posting a much junior officer in his place and the episodes of heresy before long, recommend in unequivocal terms that it was a pre-arranged craftsmanship of Sukhbir, Saini and individuals from Dera Sacha Sauda, including its head.
