Book Sangrur DC, other officers: PIL


Book Sangrur DC, other officers: PIL

Chandigarh, June 13

Just over 48 hours after Fatehveer Singh’s body was pulled out of uncovered 150-foot borewell, another petition was today filed in public interest before the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking directions for registration of a criminal case against Sangrur Deputy Commissioner and other officers concerned for causing his death due to alleged negligence, incompetency and lack of supervision.

In the plea filed by Ravneet Singh Joshi and other petitioners, it was said the FIR was also required to be registered due to insufficient steps to protect the Right to Life and the state’s failure to take essential steps to stop the recurrence of the tragedy despite several incidents in the past ignoring the SC guidelines.

Directions were also sought for ordering a judicial inquiry to be conducted within a timeframe by a HC Judge, who would examine the lapses and look into the failure of rescue operation. Compensation was also sought for the victim’s family “on account of negligence on the part of the state and failure”.— TNS
