CHANDI­GARH: The Chandi­garh chief ju­di­cial mag­is­trate on Wed­nes­day sub­mit­ted the factfind­ing in­quiry re­port in a "sealed cover" to the Pun­jab and Haryana high court re­gard­ing a case al­leg­ing the role of Sec­tor-3 SHO Poonam Di­lawari in a prop­erty dis­pute case.

Di­lawari on De­cem­ber 24, 2011, had al­legedly handed over the pos­ses­sion of a Sec­tor-8 house to the other party de­spite a high court or­der.

When the pe­ti­tion filed by Manavjit Kaur, owner of the Sec­tor-8 house, came up for ar­gu­ments in the court, jus­tice Surya Kant said he had re­ceived a let­ter warn­ing him not to hear the case.

Jus­tice Kant said he knew who had sent the let­ter but would con­tinue to hear the case.

He also said in the open court that he had passed di­rec­tions to con­duct an in­quiry into the mat­ter.

The first woman sta­tion house of­fi­cer of Chandi­garh, Poonam Di­lawari's, role had come un­der ques­tion in the case for not obey­ing the high court di­rec­tions.

In an ear­lier case filed by Manavjit, HC on De­cem­ber 22, 2011, had di­rected to main­tain sta­tus quo at the dis­puted prop­erty.

How­ever, Di­lawari along with a po­lice team al­legedly tried to in­ter­vene in the mat­ter and was al­legedly beaten up by Manavjit Kaur and her two daugh­ters at their Sec­tor- 8 house.

A case was reg­is­tered against Manavjit and her daugh­ters Kis­mat and Shreya at the Sec­tor-3 po­lice sta­tion.

Manavjit had filed a con­tempt pe­ti­tion against Satjit Kaur and other per­sons, in­clud­ing Di­lawari.

The pe­ti­tioner had sub­mit­ted that de­spite the HC or­der, Satjit Kaur along with one Ra­jesh Kumar and some po­lice of­fi­cials had taken forcible pos­ses­sion of her house in Sec­tor 8 on De­cem­ber 24, 2011.

The high court had di­rected UT SSP Nau­ni­hal Singh to in­quire into the case, who had given a clean chit to the po­lice of­fi­cials.

Not sat­is­fied by his re­port, the high court had di­rected the Chandi­garh CJM on Fe­bru­ary 29 to con­duct a fact-find­ing in­quiry.

The case will now come up for hear­ing on Au­gust 2.
