After meeting Governor VP Singh Badnore, IG Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh on Friday indicated that he was firm on resigning and had convinced Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh of the same. 

The meeting with the Governor started at 11:32 am, confirmed an official of the Governor's office.

The IG had recently resigned from the police service after an adverse order by the Punjab and Haryana High Court in the Kotkapura police firing case. His resignation was, however, rejected by the Punjab Chief Minister.

The IG was the key investigator in the case that was probed by a five-member SIT.

After the meeting with the Governor, Partap said the meeting was “routine and in his private capacity.” 

On the status of his premature retirement application to the Chief Minister, he said he was firm on his decision even though the CM had tried to convince him to remain in service. Pratap added that he had assured the CM that he would continue to assist the SIT from outside, whenever the government takes any concrete step in the direction. 

The IG’s resolution has started creating a crisis for the Congress government. Congress leaders fear that the IG’s retirement over the SIT probe would work towards the party’s disadvantage in the upcoming 2022 elections.
