SIT begins scrutinising untraced reports
CHANDIGARH: The Haryana government on Thursday told the Punjab and Haryana high court that the SIT, headed by inspector general of police (IGP), Hisar range, Amitabh Singh Dhillon has started scrutinising untraced reports prepared by local police in Rohtak district on FIRS registered into Jat quota violence of February 2016.
“Each SP has identified 25 important cases from amongst those allocated for supervision of investigation. It was informed by police officials that the case files had been obtained from the concerned police stations and allocated to investigating officers under their supervision. SP Sirsa is in the process of obtaining these files,” Dhillon told the court.
The SIT is scrutinising 1,105 FIRS including 921 cases in which untraced repots were prepared, but not filed and 184 cases, which are still under investigation.
A total of 1,212 FIRS were registered for arson during Jat quota violence in Rohtak district in 2016.
WHY VIPASSANA IS WANTED?
The ongoing interrogation of Honeypreet, the “adopted” daughter of Ram Rahim, has revealed that Vipassana was also part of a meeting that took place in the dera on August 17, wherein planning was made to spread arson in Panchkula, in case the sect head is convicted. The police suspect that Vipassana, being the administrative head of the dera, might be privy to the conspiracy behind the violence.
‘BOOK HONEYPREET’S FORMER HUSBAND FOR DEFAMING HER’
Rohtak Haryana State Women Commission has asked police to take action against Honeypreet Insan’s ex-husband Vishwas
Gupta for ‘defaming’ her.
In a letter to Haryana DGP BS Sandu, BJP leader and chairperson of the women commission Pratibha Suman has asked police to book Gupta under suitable sections and send a compliance report to the commission within seven days.
Suman said the letter was sent after lawyers of a human rights group met her with a complaint against Gupta. “They complained that Gupta held a press conference in Chandigarh in which he openly insulted Honeypreet for having illicit relationship with
her father-figure Ram Rahim,” she said.
The complaint further stated: “The news of his claim was widely circulated in print and electronic media, but he did not back it up with any proof. Who is he to defame her now by making such statements?”
Speaking to HT, Suman said, “Honeypreet is accused of inciting violence in Panchkula. But being the chairperson of the women commission, I cannot let anyone defame her character like this. That is why I have written a letter to the DGP.”
