Bathinda, December 24

A special court of Bathinda has acquitted Special Task Force (STF) Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Gursharan Singh in a case pertaining to a woman’s sexual exploitation.

In its order, the court said the DSP could lodge a complaint against the three policemen, complainant woman and her husband for registering a case within 15 days with the DGP. The court also issued notices to the Civil Lines police station SHO Ravinder Singh along with SI Amandeep Kaur and SI Harpinder Kaur under Section 340 of the CRPC and directed them to appear before the court on January 10.

DSP’s legal counsel Harpinder Singh Sidhu said the court agreed with their arguments and acquitted the DSP on December 20 and found that a case had been registered against the DSP under conspiracy. “The orders say that after receiving the complaint, the DGP will take action on the complaint as per the law,” he said.

“On the orders of the court, DSP Gursharan Singh had on Friday approached the DGP to lodge a complaint against three police officials,’’ the advocate said.

The Bathinda police had arrested DSP Gursharan Singh from a private hotel in Bathinda on October 26, 2020, over the allegations of sexually exploiting a woman, whom the DSP had arrested earlier, along with her husband and son, with 212 gm “chitta” and had registered a case against them under the NDPS Act.
