Chandigarh – Panjab – India, 28 May 2019. With the lifting of model code of conduct in Punjab, the Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh has reinstated IG Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh as a SIT member. He has been reassigned the investigation of Behbal Klan and Kotkapura firing incidents.

It is learnt that the Chief Secretary (Home Affairs) N S Kalsi has passed orders reinstating Kanwar Vijay Partap Singh as an IGP (Organized Crime Control) and IG (Counter Intelligence, Amritsar) at the behest of Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh.

It may be recalled here that the Election Commission had removed IG Kanwar Vijay Partap Singh from the Special Investigation Team on the complaint of Shiromani Akali Dal. The SAD leaders had accused IG Kanwar Vijay Partap Singh of portraying their party in the poor light by holding unnecessary press conferences.

Opposing the removal of IG Kanwar Vijay Partap Singh, the Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh had said that he didn’t find anything objectionable in the media interviews given by the IG Kanwar Vijay Partap Singh.

He had clarified that the SIT was working as per the recommendations of Justice Ranjit Singh led investigation commission and the Punjab government didn’t interfere in this investigation.

Ensuring the Sikh community of punishing the culprits responsible for sacrilege and firing incidents, Captain had said that opening fire on the peacefully protesting Sikhs was not possible without the nod of the then Punjab CM Parkash Badal and the Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal.

Sharing the development with media about IG Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh’s reinstatement as a SIT member, a government official said that now the investigation speed of Behbal Klan and Kotkapura firing incidents will get boosted.
