Charges against Saini framed
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, December 6
A Delhi court today framed charges against Punjab IGP Sumedh Singh Saini and three others in a case pertaining to the “disappearance” of two Ludhiana businessmen and their driver from “illegal” detention 12 years ago.

Sessions Judge Vinod Goel framed charges of criminal conspiracy, wrongful confinement and kidnapping against Saini, police officer Sukmohinder Singh Sandhu and two other cops, Paramjeet Singh and Balbir Chand Tiwari.

The CBI had contended before the Session Judge that it had collected enough evidence to show that a “prima facie” case for putting the police officers on trial could be made out.

The case against Saini was transferred to Delhi by the Supreme Court on the petition of Amar Kaur, the mother of Ludhiana businessman Vinod Kumar, who went missing from the custody of Ludhiana Kotwali station, along with his brother-in-law Ashok Kumar and driver Mukhtiyar Singh, after detention between February 23, 1994, and March 3, 1994.
