High Court snubs Bajwa
Chandigarh/ September 23, 2015- Punjab and Haryana High Court today rejected Punjab Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa’s petition seeking CBI probe into drug smuggling in the state. The court took a strong view of the demand saying judiciary could not be used to settle political scores by the politicians. The high court, while snubbing Bajwa, asserted it did not need the help of the politicians to decide as to who should conduct the probe and when. Giving a very strong message to the politician, the court said that the politicians should perform their duties in the legislature or raise the issues on other public platforms rather than trying to interfering in the functioning of the judiciary. The court said that the drug menace was not the concern of any particular political party.
