The ongoing property dispute of parental house of Member Parliament (MP) Kirron Kher in Sector 8, Chandigarh, witnessed claims and counter claims on Friday when traffic police took away the car of Kher’s sister-in-law Gurindesh Sandhu on the complaint of MP’s father Thakar Singh, 103, which was parked at the premises for the past three years.
Later, Gurindesh filed a counter complaint to Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Sukhchain Singh Gill, alleging the MP used her influence and got her car removed, even when the matter is sub-judice. The property dispute over the house is going on for the past several years between Kher and her sister-in-law.
In his complaint to deputy commissioner of Chandigarh lodged in February this year, Thakar Singh had stated that the car was illegally parked in the driveway and obstructing his movement around the house.
Singh further in complaint stated that his daughters Kirron Kher and Kanwar Thakur Singh are the co-owners of the ground floor and the annexe portion of the house, while he is the owner of the first floor of the main house.
While reacting to the incident on Friday, MP Kher said, “the car is not registered in the name of Gurindesh Sandhu and was parked illegally for the past three years. The complaint was lodged by my father as it was obstructing his path. He was facing inconvenience as his car could not come inside. Also, if required, due to his age, an ambulance could also not come inside. The vehicle was removed by a legal procedure which can be verified. Her complaint is baseless and malafide,” she said.
Meanwhile, Kher’s sister-in-law in her complaint alleged that on Friday, when she had gone to attend the court hearing relating to the house in Sector 8, “I got to know that, police have removed my car forcibly by a crane. This amounts to contempt of court as we have already received status quo twice on this property. We do not know where the car is and from our CCTV footage we saw the traffic police removing the car. The footage is with us. We fear that the police is under the influence of local MP who is also my late husband’s elder sister.”
