Sumedh Saini moves Supreme Court as Punjab police raid hideouts

New Delhi, September 11

As the Punjab Police raided hideouts in search of former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini, an accused in the 1991 Balwant Singh Multani murder case, he has moved the Supreme Court for anticipatory bail to avoid his arrest.

The Punjab Police too have filed a caveat to pre-empt Saini from getting any ex-parte relief from the top court which is likely to take up his plea next week. Multani, a JE with with CITCO, was allegedly picked up by the police in December 1991 after a terror attack on Saini.

In May this year, the former DGP and six others were booked by the Mohali police for Multani’s ‘kidnapping’. The murder charge was added in August after two of the accused cops spilled the beans.

Saini is also facing trial in a Special CBI court in Delhi for the alleged abduction of businessman Vinod Kumar, his brother-in-law Ashok Kumar and their driver. — TNS
