The complainant in an eight-year old case against Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, Naresh Kumar Sehgal, said he had filed an application with the Faridkot additional district & sessions judge seeking cancellation of Badal's bail. He alleged Badal travelled abroad without the court's permission, which he said was one of the bail conditions set by the Punjab & Haryana High Court.

Sehgal, who is now incarcerated in a local jail after being charged with abetting the suicide of a Kotkapura youth, has also stated in his application to the judge that Badal's passport be confiscated.

In 2006 the police had filed a criminal case under sections 307, 392, 327, 323, 201 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code against seven people, including Badal, on the directions of the high court in connection with poll related violence that allegedly took place in 1999.

In his application to the judge, Sehgal claimed the case regarding the poll incident was pending with a Faridkot court and another related case he had filed was pending in the high court. He also sought legal action be taken against police officials who allegedly helped him travel abroad without the court's prior approval.

Sehgal also demanded to be provided police security, claiming he was facing a serious threat to his life by virtue of the fact that he had filed a criminal complaint against the deputy chief minister.
