Ludhiana, November 23
A Jagraon court has ordered the police to reinvestigate the case after it refused to uphold the report about the cancellation of a case registered under the SC/ST Atrocities Act against former Principal of GHG Khalsa College Gurusar Sudhar.

Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate Jitender Walia has directed the Jagraon police to conduct a fresh probe as complainant Balwant Singh had refused to accept the report leading to the cancellation of the case.

Former Principal and now Honorary Director of the college Manjeet Singh Khatra was booked, on a complaint lodged by an employee of college Balwant Singh on February 25, for using abusive language.

Last year the police had urged the court to cancel the case as the Jagraon SP(Headquarters) had found the charges levelled by Balwant Singh false.

A copy of the report reveals that the statements of persons concerned with the case were taken. Majority of them claimed that the charges were false and no incident as alleged by Balwant Singh had taken place.

The police questioned Capt Hakam Singh, Kewal Singh, Nirmal Singh, Darshan Singh and others. All barring Capt Hakam Singh said the accused had not and could not utter such words or behave in this manner.

Balwant Singh had termed the police investigation as an eyewash and sought reinvestigation. The FIR was registered only after SC/ST Commission Chairperson Tanzyn Wangyal, had on February 19, urged the police to register a case. The police, however, failed to implement the orders at which the complainant had to once again approach the commission.
