The Election Commission of India (ECI) has termed “inappropriate” the report filed by additional director general of police CSR Reddy, incharge of the election wing of the Punjab police, about complaints received against some senior cops of helping candidates of the ruling SADBJP combine. Principal secretary, home, SS Channy has been asked by the ECI to send a fresh report.

The ADGP’s report, received on Monday, exonerated all the officials —Ludhiana police commissioner Paramjit Singh Gill; inspector general (IG), intelligence, Bathinda, JK Jain; Bathinda zonal IG PS Umranangal, and the senior superintendents of police (SSPs) of Ferozepur ( Manminder Singh), Mansa ( Bhupinder Singh) and Bathinda (Gurpreet Singh Bhullar) — but it was not found satisfactory and the state EC asked for a fresh report from Channy within 24 hours, that is, by Tuesday evening.
