Chandigarh – Panjab – India, 29 April 2019. In an immediate reaction to media reports claiming clean chit to Akali leaders, the Special Investigation Team has clarified that it didn’t give clean chit to anyone in Behbal Klan firing case.

The SIT has said that it has filed charge-sheet against only one accused Ex-SSP Moga Charanjit Sharma and the investigation of some aspects was still underway against him.

Interacting with media, a spokesperson of Punjab police said that how the SIT could give clean chit to anyone when the investigation in this case was still underway.

He clarified that the 792 page charge-sheet was filed against Ex-SSP Charanjit Sharma only and solid evidences have been presented in the charge-sheet. “The SIT will file a supplementary charge-sheet against anyone found guilty in this firing incident,” he added.

He further said that if there is not any illustration about someone in the charge-sheet it doesn’t mean that he has been given a clean chit until unless the investigation concludes.

Meanwhile, Sikh24 has learnt that the SIT filed charge-sheet against the Ex-SSP Moga Charanjit Sharma in a hurry because if the SIT won’t have filed it then Charanjit Sharma might have become eligible for bail.

Charanjit Sharma was arrested on January 27 this year and it is mandatory for Police to file charge-sheet against the accused within 90 days of his arrest in cases under-trial of Sessions Court.
