Like Akalis, Cong govt dealing with tainted cops with velvet gloves: Dal Khalsa

The Dal Khalsa on Friday castigated the Punjab government for giving ample opportunity to cops guilty of Behbal Kalan firing to get judicial relief. Referring to the High Court orders staying the proceedings against former police officers Charanjit Singh Sharma, Raghbir Singh Sandhu and Amarjit Singh Kalar indicted on the recommendations of Justice Ranjit Singh Commission, the organisation believes the state machinery deliberately delayed its action against them so that they could get reprieve from courts.

Party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said the impunity to police force is the long arm of the state of Punjab. The dilly-dallying tactics adopted by the present government to arrest these cops is an eye-opener for all stakeholders and people of Punjab who preposterously expect that Capt Amarinder Singh would prosecute former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and ex-DGP Sumedh Singh Saini. "Punjab has witnessed many instances of police impunity, the latest one being the opportunity provided by the state government to the police to take the judicial route and save their skin".

Like its predecessor, the Dal Khalsa leader said, the Congress government too was dealing with tainted cops with velvet gloves. "Justice has become the causality", he said after presiding over the meeting of the office bearers of Majha zone of the party.

Referring to the recently constituted SIT, Dal Khalsa men are highly skeptical whether the police officials will act against their own senior colleagues or like many incidents of the past, this SIT too will turn out to be a damp squib.

Given the manner in which guilty cops have been provided an escape route through judiciary, one can easily make out the fate of the recommendations of the SIT, Mr Kanwar Pal Singh said.

He said the people were awakened and they would not allow the Amarinder government to adopt double standards- criticizing ilks of Badals and Saini in assembly and doing nothing in reality on the ground.
