A lawyer booked along with two other persons two days ago by Chandigarh police on charge of teasing a woman constable and assaulting her husband in Sector 27 on February 7 has submitted a representation to the UT IGP RP Upadhyaya and SSP Naunihal Singh and claimed "false implication" in the case. 


Advocate Amarbir Singh has said in his representation that he and his two friends Kamala and Gobind Kumar were in fact thrashed by the police constable and that they had not sexually harassed the cop's wife.

Meanwhile, Amarbir's counsel PIP Singh said that his client had got interim bail from a local court.

The couple had alleged on Thursday that they were stalked, misbehaved with and assaulted by three youths traveling in a Swift car. Following the complaint, police booked the trio on Sunday.

Amarbir Singh had on Monday approached the media and claimed that they were falsely implicated in the sexual harassment case. He had claimed that it was a case of road rage and not sexual harassment.

Amarbir had claimed that they were going to Gurdwara Nada Sahib when the couple's motorcycle hit their car near a temple in Sector 19. He claimed that when he objected, the policeman started hurling abuses at them and attacked them.

The lawyer said that many people gathered at the spot due to commotion created by the police constable who thrashed the trio, injuring him on his left eye. He also alleged that the couple even changed the spot of the alleged crime from Sector 19 to 27. 

Amarbir's father Deepinder Singh had said that they were shocked to read about their son's alleged involvement in a sexual harassment case.

UT IGP RP Upadhyaya assured that all angles of the case would be looked into and justice would be done.
