Chandigarh, December 13
Raman Kumar, former station house
officer (SHO) allegedly involved in the Moga sex scandal, surrendered in the Sector 30, office of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), here, this evening.

Accompanied by his advocates and other persons Raman Kumar reached the CBI office at 4:30 pm in three vehicles. B.L. Soni DIG CBI said Raman Kumar had surrendered this evening and he would be produced before court tomorrow for police remand.

The Punjab and Haryana high Court had ordered Raman Kumar to surrender before the CBI on December 12, but he did not appear before the agency till this afternoon.

The high court had ordered the CBI to probe the scandal following ruling of a division bench justice would not be done if the case stayed in the hands of the Punjab Police, as names of political bigwigs and top cops had figured in case’s status reports.

The names of Moga’s former SSP Davinder Singh Garcha, former education minister Tota Singh and his son Baljinder Singh have figured in the sex scandal proceedings.

The racket involves alleged extortion of money from ‘innocent people’ by police officials in connivance with two women.

The duo would implicate people. After accepting illegal gratification, the two would ‘withdraw their names from the array of accused’.

The court had earlier ruled a DSP-rank officer would not be in a position to investigate the case in which senior police officers and political leaders were involved.
