Though the complainant in the Rs 70 lakh Economic Offences Wing (EOW) graft case, fearing threat from the accused held in the case, had sought security, an RTI application has revealed she didn’t file any such complaint.
BS Negi, deputy superintendent of police-cum-central public information officer, Police Headquarters, Chandigarh, in an RTI reply to advocate OP Sharma said no such complaint was filed by complainant Gurneet Kaur.
Sharma had sought a detailed status regarding action taken on the complaint submitted by Kaur to UT adviser Vijay Dev regarding threat to her family in view of the graft case registered against Sanjay Dahuja, owner of Berkeley Automobiles, Industrial Area, KLG Hotel owner Aman Grover, sub-inspector Surinder Singh and deputy superintendent of police Ram Kumar Meena.
RTI reply submitted by DSP Negi read, “As per the record, no such request was filed by Guneet Kaur.” Pertinent that the CBI on September 14 had strongly opposed the bail pleas of DSP RC Meena, SI Surinder Bhardwaj, Sanjay Dahuja and Aman Grover, executive director of KLG Hyundai, Industrial Area, after the CBI submitted the latter written by Kaur to UT advisor Dev on September 1 fearing her safety and security.
The bail of the accused was then rejected on September 17.
Talking to HT, Kaur said, “I had sent the complaint letter through a registered post to the adviser’s office, and moreover, I also met UT administrator (governor) in person.”
DSP RC Meena, SI Surinder Kumar, Sanjay Dahuja, and Aman Grover were arrested on August 13 for allegedly demanding and accepting illegal gratification of Rs 70 lakh, including Rs 40 lakh cash and Rs 30 lakh in the form of cheques. The gratification was sought for not arresting parents and brother of complainant Gurneet Kaur in the case registered against them.
