No politicisation of Punjab police, says DGP

Director General of Police (DGP), Saini, said, "In the ASI murder case at Amritsar as well as the brawl case at a Ludhiana pub in which assistant inspector general of police (AIG) S S Mand was injured, the police had swung into action and nabbed the culprits, within a few hours of the crime."

In both the cases, the matter was under investigation and further action would be taken as and when new facts come to light.

"As regards the case of suicide of a minor rape victim at Samana in Patiala district was concerned, prompt action had been taken, the accused had been booked and police officials found guilty of dereliction of duty had also been punished," he said.

Saini said that he was surprised to read media reports giving political colour even to the encounter in Mattewal village between robbers and policemen by alleging that the main accused, proclaimed offender Sulakhan, had been allowed to escape due to political pressure. He said that this was absolutely untrue and baseless. PTI VJ PL
