Mohali, September 21

Days after the Supreme Court issued directions to former Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Sumedh Singh Saini to join investigation in the Balwant Singh Multani murder case, the Special Investigating Team (SIT) on Monday summoned him to join investigation by September 23.

Not finding Saini at his residence in Chandigarh’s Sector 20, the SIT pasted the notice outside the house and also gave a copy to his counsels — advocates HS Dhanoa and Misha Rohtagi.

The notice pasted on the wall reads “Saini is summoned to reach Mataur police station in Mohali at 11 AM on September 23, 2020 to join investigation”.

Pertinently, Saini was given relief by SC on September 15 by ordering interim stay on his arrest at the hands of the Punjab Police in the Balwant Singh Multani murder case and directed him to co-operate and join investigations with SIT.

According to sources, the Punjab police said they are not aware about Saini coming out of the hiding to make himself available for joining the investigations. 

Multani, a junior engineer with Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Corporation, was allegedly picked up by the police in December 1991 after a terror attack on Saini that left three policemen killed. Saini was injured in the attack.
