A delegation of leaders from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress on Tuesday called upon the Election Commission (EC), seeking review of its order relieving Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh as a member of the SIT probing the Bagari firing incident.
The ECI had earlier directed the Punjab government to transfer Kumwar for "violating" the Model Code of Conduct (MCC). Following the directions, the Punjab government posted Kunwar as Inspector General of Police, Counter-Intelligence, in Amritsar.
"The Akalis had been trying unsuccessfully to scuttle the investigations into the sacrilege and subsequent firing cases that took place during their tenure, and were now restoring to desperate measures to save their skin," CM Amarinder had said.
