The Punjab and Haryana high court has directed the Chandigarh police to complete the inquiry within three months, wherein an immigration firm owner had levelled `4 crore bribery allegations against former city senior superintendent of police (SSP) Naunihal Singh and some other police officers.
The order came on a petition filed by Healthyway Immigration company owner Amit Kakkar, who had approached the high court in 2014.
The high court was informed by the UT that allegations in the April 2014 representation were being investigated by the Chandigarh deputy inspector general (DIG).
The high court, while disposing of the petition, has directed the police to complete the probe within three months and take appropriate action as per the law.
An accused in the immigration fraud cases, Kakkar in a police complaint had alleged that some senior police officers, including Naunihal Singh, allegedly extorted `4 crore from him.
Kakkar was being investigated by police in fraud cases, wherein over 300 complaints were registered against him.
He had alleged that four UT police officers, along with two associates, extorted `4 crore from him between 2011 and 2014.
Besides the then senior superintendent of police Naunihal Singh, the names of deputy superintendent of police Anil Joshi, sub-inspector Rajdeep, inspector Diwan Singh and two others were also mentioned in the April-2014 complaint.
