Chandigarh (January 15, 2010): According to a news published in a major daily of Punjab, if former police cat Gurmeet Singh Pinky has been fibbing about his poor health to get out on bail, directions by a Division Bench of the Punjab and Haryana High Court will soon reveal the truth.
Taking up his plea for bail on health grounds in a murder case, the Bench of Justice Mehtab Singh Gill and Justice Arvind Kumar today directed his medical examination.
“Pinky’s previous attempts to “hoodwink” the court to “remain out of jail for a long time” had earned him the wrath of the court. Taking exception, another Bench of the high court had asserted: “Pinky failed to get bail from this court, but secured parole and then came back to seek extension of the parole on the very ground on which he had sought suspension of sentence.”
Pinky was sentenced to life in October, 2006, for shooting Avtar Singh on January 7, 2001. He is currently lodged at Patiala Central Jail.” says the TNS report. As the case came up before the Bench headed by Justice Gill this morning, it was contended on Pinky’s behalf that he was suffering from orthopedic and some other problem. The Bench also called for the medical examination report, before fixing February 5 as the next date of hearing.
