Bathinda, July 24

The Kotwali police in Bathinda have booked two policemen for registering a ‘false’ rape case against two persons.

On the orders of a special court, the police registered a case against SI Ganeshwar Kumar, dismissed head constable Rajiv Kumar and one Anmol Kaur of Nihal Singh Wala district in Moga, who had filed the ‘wrong complaint’ of rape.

However, the SI said he had not registered any false case against anyone and was being falsely implicated. “I will approach the High Court against this decision of the Bathinda court,” he said.

In an order issued on July 16 by Justice Baljinder Singh Saran of the special court, it is stated that Ganeshwar was posted as an ASI along with Rajiv in the Kotwali police station in May 2017 and on May 7, 2017, Ganeshwar was the duty officer. On the statements of the accused woman, he had registered a rape case against Bhushan Kumar and Nihal Singh, residents of Bathinda.

Further, it is stated that Ganeshwar and Rajiv made a false rape case against Bhushan and Nihal under a conspiracy and that Gagandeep Singh and Rajinder Singh were made government witnesses in the case and recorded their statements. Bhushan and Nihal said this case was registered against them due to rivalry in an old case.
