Chandigarh/Faridkot, April 8

The Election Commission of India has asked Chief Secretary, Punjab, to relieve IGP Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh from his present posting as member of Special Investigation Team (SIT) which is probing the police firing incident at Behbal Kalan and Kotkapura.

Kunwar Vijay Pratap has been transferred as IG, Counter Intelligence, Amritsar.

It has taken the action against the IGP after receiving a complaint from Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Gujral. The MP had made a complaint against IGP Kunwar Vijay Partap on March 22 after the latter had allegedly given a politically- motivated interview on a TV channel on March 18 and March 19. 

The interview was about the ongoing investigation by the SIT in the police firing incidents and allegedly many political comments were also made, reads the Election Commission letter to the Chief Secretary. 

The EC has asked the Chief Secretary to make compliance of the directions of relieving Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh by 5 pm this evening.

It has asked the Chief Secretary not to give any post related to election work to the IGP.

The poll panel also asked the Chief Secretary to direct the SIT members not to air any such contents in future during the period of Model Code of Conduct which will affect the fairness of conduction of electoral process.
