Chandigarh: In a government press release issued late Saturday evening (copy available with Sikh Siyasat News) it is said that [t]he Punjab Police Vigilance Bureau has issued a look-out notice for former Moga SSP Raj Jit Singh in view of media reports indicating that he may flee the country.
According to a police spokesman, Raj Jit is required for questioning in connection with FIR no. 1/2015 registered at PS Flying Squad, Vigilance Bureau.
The FIR pertains to allegations against the dismissed Inspector Inderjit Singh, then posted in Tarn Taran, and Raj Jit, who was then SSP there.
As per the FIR, some alleged drug smugglers had managed to get a clean chit in the chemical examination of certain drugs seized from them as a result of the complicity of the lab staff.
It was further alleged that Inspector Inderjit, on receiving a tip-off, had called the said lab staff for questioning and instead of arresting the main accused Jagdeep Singh, had, in consultation with Raj Jit Singh, made him an approver in the case, the press release states.
There are allegations that money was exchanged in the process, according to the Punjab police spokesman, who name was not disclosed in the statement.
“The Look-Out Notice issued by Vigilance Bureau has been sent to the Punjab Police Intelligence Bureau and will be dispatched to airports and other exit points to prevent Raj Jit from escaping questioning”, the statement reads further.
Raj Jit Hundal is currently posted as commandant 4th battalion Mohali since his transfer out of Moga.
“A police spokesperson said they had received strict instructions from the Chief Minister to ensure action not only in pending matters but also new allegations that have surfaced in recent days against certain police personnel”, the statement reads further.
