Seeking bail, former Moga SSP moves HC

Tribune News Service

Faridkot, March 16

Two weeks after the court of Faridkot District and Sessions Judge rejected the bail application of former Moga SSP Charanjit Singh Sharma in the case pertaining to police firing at Behbal Kalan, Sharma has approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court. His bail application will be heard on March 20.

Sharma is learnt to have hired the same battery of advocates who had successfully procured bail for suspended IG Paramraj Singh Umranangal last week.

For the alleged offence of ordering unprovoked firing on protesters at Behbal Kalan on October 14, 2015, which had led to killing of two persons, Sharma was arrested by the Special Investigation Team from his residence in Hoshiarpur on January 27. He is presently lodged in Central Jail, Patiala.

Earlier on March 1, the Special Investigation Team had opposed the bail application of Sharma in the District and Sessions Court. Following which, the court rejected the plea.

The Special Investigation Team had claimed that there was reasonable apprehension of influencing the witness and threat to the complainant with the release of the former SSP on bail.

In his bail plea before the High Court, Sharma has claimed that there was no substantial evidence on record so far and releasing him was not going to impede the investigation. He has claimed that he is a heart patient and had undergone two surgeries, so he deserved to be released on bail.
