DIG-Jails resigns over agri laws

Chandigarh, December 13

DIG (Jails) Lakhminder Singh Jakhar on Sunday submitted his resignation claiming that he was doing so to protest against the contentious farm laws.

Jakhar had in 2012 refused to carry out the death sentence of Beant Singh assassination case convict Balwant Singh Rajoana. Jakhar said he would join the farmers' protest. ADGP (Jails) PK Sinha confirmed the development. He said the government is yet to accept the resignation as an inquiry on alleged corruption charges against him was pending. Jakhar was suspended a few months ago for allegedly taking money from jail officials on a monthly basis. He was re-instated later. — TNS
