Process to pardon SP in initial stage, state tells court


Process to pardon SP in initial stage, state tells court

Chandigarh, November 8

A day after a Sangrur woman sought directions for restraining Punjab and other respondents from granting pardon to retired Superintendent of Police (SP) Preetpal Singh Virk, the Punjab and Haryana High Court was today told that the process was in its initial stage.

Petitioner Sukhwinder Kaur through counsel HC Arora had earlier told the High Court that the ex-policeman was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in a case regarding her husband Tejinder Singh’s kidnapping.

Appearing before Justice Tejinder Singh Dhindsa’s Bench, the state counsel verbally submitted that Preetpal Singh had furnished an application for granting him pardon. But the matter was still in the initial stage and the government was yet to consider it.

The Bench was also told that the prosecution in this case was conducted by the CBI and Union Home Ministry’s permission would be necessary before considering the proposal for granting pardon to Preetpal Singh. Ultimately, it was for the Governor to take a decision on the application. The entire process might take about two months. He said the government was ready to grant hearing to the petitioner against the proposal to pardon Preetpal Singh, if an application was moved for the purpose. — TNS
