Punjab Police raids ex-DGP's house in 29-year-old kidnapping case

Chandigarh, Aug 29 (TIWN) Punjab Police on Friday morning raided the residence of former state Director General of Police Sumedh Singh Saini, but could not find him there.

Saini was booked in connection with the 29-year-old 'abduction' case of Balwant Singh Multani in May this year.

Section 302 (punishment for murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been added last week in the first information report (FIR) against Saini on the direction of a trial court in Mohali near here.

A day earlier, the Mohali court reserved orders on Saini's bail application.

Based on the complaint, the case was registered afresh under Sections 364 (kidnapping or abduction in order to murder), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence), 344 (wrongful confinement), 330 (voluntarily causing hurt to exhort confession) and 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) in Mohali on May 7.

The kidnapping case was related to a bomb attack on Saini by the Khalistan Liberation Force militants in 1991. At that time, he was the Senior Superintendent of Police and posted in Chandigarh. He survived with injuries, but his three security personnel were killed.
