Chandigarh, April 13

The Justice Mehtab Singh Gill (retd) Commission has found that the cases registered during the Akali-BJP rule against SAD (Amritsar) chief Simranjit Singh Mann, AAP MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira and Sukhwinder Singh Mithu were false and has recommended action against erring officials.

In its sixth interim report submitted to CM Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday, Justice Gill has recommended action in 47 of the 240 cases, while 193 were dismissed for various reasons.

A spokesperson said the commission had recommended the cancellation of the sedition case against Mann and 17 FIRs against Khaira and his supporters.

Mithu, a panchayat member of Kaunke village in Jagraon, was implicated in eight cases after he complained against the relatives of his Canada-born wife Jaswinder Kaur (Jassi), who was murdered in 2000. The commission found 182 policemen guilty of framing Mithu.

A sedition case was registered against Mann at the behest of the Akalis, the commission found. It endorsed the findings of the police that all 17 cases registered against Khaira (then a Congress leader) and his supporters in 2007-08 by the then Akali government were false.
