Chandigarh, June 23, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The new SIT formed by the Punjab Government to probe 2015 Kotkapura firing incident, which recently questioned former Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, has now summoned the then Deputy Chief Minister-cum-Home Minister and Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal.
The SIT-led by ADGP Vigilance LK Yadav has issued notice to Sukhbir Singh Badal on 26th of June at 11.00 AM at Punjab Police Institute in Sector 32.
It may be recalled that the SIT had visited Senior Badal’s MLA flat in Chandigarh on June 22 to question him regarding the incident of firing that happened in Kotkapura Chowk when the Sikh sangat was protesting against the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib in Bargari.
Interestingly, a former Director Prosectuion Vijay Singla had accompanied members of the SIT for questioning the Senior Badal. The Akali Dal had then objected to Vijay Singla’s entry and he was not allowed to go inside and question the former Chief Minister.
However, it was later revealed that Vijay Singla was added to the SIT as a Legal Expert.
It now remains to be seen whether Vijay Singla remains present during questioning of Sukhbir Badal by SIT or not. It will also be interesting to note whether SAD or Sukhbir Badal in person object to the presence of Vijay Singla or not.
