Chandigarh, October 13

Four police personnel, including an Inspector, have been suspended for alleged breach of CM Charanjit Singh Channi’s security at the ‘ladies sangeet’ ceremony during his son’s wedding on October 9.

Inspector Sukhbir Singh, Jaskaran Singh, Darshan Singh and Satbir were on duty outside the venue, but they reportedly left the place and entered the room where the CM and his family were present. Sources said the cops were seen clicking pictures with the CM at the function. Mohali SSP Navjot Singh Mahal said the cops had been “suspended for carelessness”.

Tax on duty

  • The suspended cops were posted outside the wedding venue of the CM’s son
  • They entered a room where the CM and his family were present
  • The cops were reportedly in an inebriated condition

Channi’s son Navjit Singh tied the knot at a gurdwara in Mohali on October 10. In an internal report prepared by the Police Department, it has been pointed out that a video footage showed the Inspector, posted in the CIA wing at Kharar, allegedly crossing the CM’s security cordon in an inebriated condition and coming close to the CM. No effort was made by the security personnel to stop him.

Women police personnel deployed in civil dress were seen enjoying food and beverages inside the function. Even the personnel deployed at the gates had left their duty points before the function ended. Not only unidentified persons were seen approaching the CM’s vehicle, the commandos posted in the CM’s security were seen busy on their mobile phones and some others were seen on camera consuming alcohol. — TNS
