DSP’s attempt to stop press meet stirs row; SSP seeks explanation

Patiala, August 5

The Patiala SSP has sought an explanation from a DSP after he allegedly tried to stop a press conference here on Wednesday. Kamaljit Singh, 70, a resident of Patiala, alleging land grab and threat to his life from the henchmen of a politician, reached the club for the press conference.

Kamaljit alleged that he had bought land at Shadipur village in 1997, but the sellers occupied it illegally. He was being pressurised by the henchmen of a politician. He claimed that he had submitted a complaint at the Sanaur police station, but no action was taken.

Meanwhile, Ajaypal Singh, DSP rural, entered the club and allegedly tried to stop the press conference. The members of the club then submitted a complaint to SSP Vikramjeet Singh Duggal, who later sought an explanation from the officer.
