Chandigarh, September 10

The Special CBI Court on Tuesday framed charges against Jagjit Singh, former joint director, Department of Technical Education and Industrial Training, Punjab, in connection with a corruption case.

Special CBI judge Sushil Kumar Garg framed the charges against Jagjit Singh for the offence committed under Sections 7, 13 (1) (d) punishable under Section 13(2) of the Prevention of Corruption Act. The judge read over and explained the charges to accused Jagjit Singh. However, the accused pleaded not guilty to the charges framed against him and claimed a trial.

In the previous hearing, the accused had moved an application for exemption from personal appearance. Keeping in view the facts mentioned in the application, the personal appearance was exempted for that day.

However, the court directed the Mohali District Hospital CMO to verify the medical record of the accused, submitted by him regarding bed rest for 10 days on OPD slips dated August 27, August 31 and September 5 onwards. The court directed the CMO to submit his report as to whether the bed rest was required.

The CBI had nabbed Jagjit Singh while allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 50,000 from Gurraj Singh Sidhu, chairman, Omkar Industrial Training Institute, Maur Mandi, Bathinda, on February 17, 2017.
