3 cops suspended for not appearing in drugs case 

Moga, October 6

The police have suspended three cops from service against whom non-bailable warrants were issued by the District and Sessions Court for not appearing as prosecution witnesses in a drug seizure case.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Sonia Kinra had issued warrants against head constable Kuldeep Singh and constables Sarwan Singh and Sukhdev Singh. They were “absconding” after the Punjab and Haryana High Court ordered to take them into protective custody for not appearing as prosecution witnesses in a drug seizure case two weeks ago. The HC has also refused to grant anticipatory bail to them.

The police tried to take them into protective custody as ordered by the HC, but they neither reported on duty at the Dharamkot police station nor were they found at home.

The Sessions Court had fixed October 16 as the next date of hearing in this case, said advocate Balwinder Singh Gill, defence counsel of Kaka Singh, a resident of Moga. He had moved the HC after his bail was cancelled for not appearing for a hearing in the trial court. 

Kaka was arrested for allegedly carrying 260 gram intoxicant powder on April 2, 2016, and a case was registered against him under Section 22 of the NDPS Act.

As per the court record, the said cops had been skipping court proceedings for the past over two years, thus delaying the process of trial.

It was due to this reason that the HC ordered to take these cops into protective custody so as to ensure that they deposed before the court for examination.
