Amritsar, May 2

Taking serious note of ignoring the instructions of Punjab State Scheduled Castes Commission and decided to write to Home Department for necessary action against the cops in this connection.

Resham Singh of Kohali village, the complainant had approached the commission member Dr Tarsem Singh Sialka in this regard. In his complaint he accused Kapil Kaushal, SHO Lopoke police station and ASI Gurmit Singh of favouring the suspects and misusing their position. He said the local court had issued an arrest warrant of Ritu Bala of IndusInd bank in a cheque bounce case on March 25.

He said that SHO Kapil Kaushal deputed ASI Gurmit Singh for arresting her. He said when the ASI went with him and raided the residence of Ritu Bala, he allegedly did not arrest her. He alleged later the ASI said that he was leaving her on his responsibility and he would get his money returned after striking a compromise.

Dr Sialka said when the complainant approached the commission, it directed DSP and SHO twice over phone to intervene in the matter. However, SHO ignored the commission’s instructions so far. Therefore, the commission would write to Home Department for necessary action against the accused cops.

Meanwhile, the commission expressed its displeasure over the functioning of the Punjab Police for ignoring the complaints of Dalit and people. He warned the police and asked them to mend their ways. He said it was brought in their notice that when the commission intervenes and ask the cops to act against the perpetrators, the police register false cases against the complainants. He said a list of accused cops would be prepared and send to the Chief Minister in this connection.
