Hours after the Punjab Police raided former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini’s house here early this morning in connection with the 1991 Multani murder case, a Mohali court extended the stay on his arrest till September 1.

The interest of justice and equity requires that interim relief already granted should continue till final disposal of the bail application. -  Mohali court

The SIT probing the case reached Saini’s house along with members of the SOG and the Organised Crime Control Unit, but did not find him there. Later in the day, the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Rajnish Garg granted him interim protection from arrest.

Saini’s counsel APS Deol had moved an applicantion for bail on August 25, but the court granted him interim relief till August 27. The raid was conducted after the court reserved its order on Saini’s anticipatory bail plea.
