High Court reserves verdict in Saini case

Chandigarh, November 3

More than a month after a week’s advance notice was directed to be issued in case Punjab’s former top cop Sumedh Singh Saini was sought to be arrested “in any case pertaining to any incident during entire service”, the Punjab and Haryana High Court today reserved its verdict in the matter.

“The interim order dated September 23 shall continue till the pronouncement of the judgment,” Justice Arun Kumar Tyagi said. The Bench, while issuing the earlier order, had also made it clear that the only exception would be the Multani case registered on May 6.

Saini had moved the court for extending the protection granted by the HC vide order dated October 11, 2018, to “any incident pertaining to the entire service career of the petitioner”. Taking up his plea expressing apprehensions of false implication in criminal matters “on account of malice, malafides and ulterior motives on the part of the political party in power in the state”, the HC had in October 2018 directed the issuance of seven-day advance notice in case action was contemplated against him. — TNS
