Sumedh Saini moves Supreme Court  for quashing FIR

Former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini

New Delhi, September 25

Former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini has moved the Supreme Court challenging a Punjab and Haryana High Court order dismissing his plea for quashing of the FIR in the 1991 Multani murder case.

A Bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan on Friday posted his petition for hearing on October 1 as the impugned order of the High Court was not on record.

The Supreme Court had on September 15 granted him interim protection from arrest and posted his plea for anticipatory bail for hearing after four weeks. The Punjab and Haryana High Court had on September 7 dismissed his anticipatory bail plea. “This case is of 1991. After 30 years what is the hurry to arrest him... We will grant you time to file a reply,” the court had said, adding he could not be arrested till further orders. — TNS
