Verma for bigger grievances box
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 15
In an interesting development, UT Administrator Chief Justice O.P. Verma (retd.) today rejected the size and location of the grievances box put up by Administration on his instructions at U.T. Secretariat.

The box had been put up inside the Secretariat building. The box was no bigger than a residential letter box. Justice Verma instructed the Adviser, Mr Raminder Singh Gujral, to put up the grievances box outside the boundary wall of UT Secretariat to ensure easy access to general public to this box. Moreover, grievances box should be of the size of the letter box of the Postal Department and should be distinctly visible and accessible to general public right outside the boundary of the UT Secretariat. The location of the present grievances box in the porch near the entry is such which may not allow easy access to the public.


Munshi sent to Police Lines
Our Correspondent

SAS Nagar, September 15
The munshi of the Sohana police station, who was accused of beating up a resident of the village, has been sent to the Police Lines.

Mr Harcharan Singh Bhullar, SP, said the munshi, Jarnail Singh, had been sent to the Police Lines because he had been visiting the house of Nirmal Singh, a resident of Sohana village, despite the latter’s objections. He said Jarnail Singh had been told not to go to Nirmal Singh’s house and maintain any links with him.

Mr Bhullar said Jarnail Singh, Nirmal Singh and his wife, Jaswinder Kaur, had been called to his office and they had reached a compromise. He said Nirmal Singh had a misunderstanding that his wife had illicit relations with Jarnail Singh. The SP said both Jarnail Singh and Jaswinder Kaur claimed that they treated each other like brother and sister.

Mr Bhullar said when Nirmal Singh had reached home on the night of September 13, he was under the influence of liquor and had also beaten his wife. A case was registered on the complaint of his wife. Jarnail Singh had secured a loan on interest for Nirmal Singh and had gone to his house to ask him to return the money.

The SP said earlier the SHO of the Sohana police station, Mr Sukhjit Singh, had been told to inquire into the matter. The inquiry failed to prove that the munshi had illicit relations with Nirmal Singh’s wife.
