Chandigarh/ Punjab (July 09, 2013): It is learnt that a Jalandhar resident has moved to the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking arrest of Punjab cop Surjit Singh SI, who recently admitted before media that he was part of many fake encounters carried by the Punjab police during 1990s. He said that he eliminated 83 people in fake encounters at the directions of his superior police officer.
It is notable that on July 08, 2013 the Punjab and Haryana High Court dismissed the plea of Surjit Singh, in which he had sought security while claiming that his life was under danger and his superiors could get him eliminated. It must be recalled that while dismissing Surjit Singh SI’s petition the High Court had suffered complete failure to take notice of list of fake encounters placed before it.
As per information a Jalandhar resident has filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking Surjit Singh SI’s arrest.
In this PIL the petitioner Shashi Sharma has sought CBI probe in the case and has stated that based on the confession statement, FIR should be lodged against him and others and Surjit Singh be arrested.
According to information available with Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) in his PIL the petitioner has also sought compensation to the families of innocent people, who were killed in fake encounter.
The PIL has been listed before the bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice A G Masih for July 09, 2013.
