Chandigarh – Panjab – India, 21 March 2019. Replying to a notice by the Punjab & Haryana High Court about the bail plea of Ex-SSP Moga Charanjit Sharma, the Special Investigation Team has told the Court that the Police cops didn’t take any permission from the Duty Magistrate Pritpal Singh to open firing on peacefully protesting Sikhs at Kotkapura and Behbal Klan.

Citing the post-mortem reports of the two Sikh youths martyred by the Police at Behbal Klan, the SIT has told the Court that the Police cops didn’t fire bullets in defense instead they attacked the Sikh protesters as the bullets were fired from very close range.

The SIT further told the Court that the Police cops had cooked a fake story of opening fire in self-defense by later firing bullets on the Gypsy of Ex-SSP Charanjit Sharma in Bathinda with the personal weapons of their known ones.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that the High Court bench has deferred the next hearing of the case onto 07 May.

It may be recalled here that the Ex-SSP Moga Charanjit Sharma was arrested by the SIT on January 27 this year. He was in an attempt to flee from the country, but the SIT got intimated of his plan and nabbed him from his residence in Hoshiarpur.
