Dismiss errant cops: Mukha’s family urges DGP

Amritsar, June 5

Family members of the Shiromani Akali Dal leader Mukhjit Singh alias Mukha, who was killed by the anti-narcotic cell of the Punjab Police in June 2015 after mistaking him to be a gangster, today urged the Director General of Police (DGP), Dinkar Gupta, to take stern action against the erring policemen.

The police had booked nine cops for culpable homicide not amounting to murder one year after the incident.

Family members of the victim had filed a complaint at a local court demanding registration of the murder case against the cops as they alleged that it was a planned murder and not a case of mistaken identity.

Yuvraj Singh, a relative of the victim, said the policemen reportedly involved in the murder of Mukha were suspended, but reinstated later. He said charges were framed against the police personnel and a case was pending in the court.

He urged the Director General of Police to dismiss erring cops from service.
