Sacrilege Incidents: Captain Amrinder questions probe methodology
Congress Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha Capt Amarinder Singh today questioned the intentions of the government behind appointing a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) rank officer in probing the charges against a Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP).
Referring to the ADGP, IPS Sahota’s recent statement that a DSP rank officer will investigate the firing incident following the protests, over the desecration of Guru Granth Sahib, in Bargari near Kotkapura, in which two protestors were killed at the hands of police, Capt Amarinder asserted that it was not a simple case of murder.
He pointed out, in this case, an SSP rank officer is an accused, who ordered the firing. “How can a DSP inquire and investigate against an SSP, who is two steps senior to him?” he asked, adding, this was yet another attempt by the government to either hush up the matter or delay and deviate the course of investigation.
The former Chief Minister maintained that from day one the intentions of the government appear to be not reaching to the truth but shielding the guilty who ordered firing on peaceful protestors killing two of them. “This will further shatter people’s conference in your probe instead of restoring it”, he told the government.
