During his service in the army, subedar (retired) Gurdeep Singh had fought against the enemies in 1965 and 1971, but now, he is “fighting for justice”.

He alleged the Haibowal police did nothing in the first information report ( FIR ) lodged by him on February 11 against his younger brother Mahinder Singh Grewal, who is a retired district development and panchayat officer (DDPO).

He further alleged that police, in collusion with his brother, are going to cancel the FIR.
Gurdeep Singh sat for around three hours before the police commissioner office, but no officer, he alleged, came to address his grievances.

He added, “If police cancel the FIR, I will sit on vow onto death before the police commissioner’s office.”

“I was told that some additional deputy commissioner of police (ADCP) Paramjit Singh Pannu will address my matter, but no one has approached me,” said Singh.

Singh said that his younger brother, Mahinder Singh, had grabbed his ancestral land in Balloke village.

“I had lodged an FIR at Haibowal police station but five months have passed, police have not submitted a charge sheet in the case,”he said, alleging police were taking his brother’s side as he is an influential person.

Gurdeep Singh also alleged that in 2006, his brother had also broken his leg during a quarrel over the land. At that time too, he had withdrawn the case after the intervention of panchayat.

Inspector Amarjit Singh, SHO, Haibowal police station, said, “The case was registered during my tenure as SHO but later, I was transferred. Now, as I rejoined the police station recently, I am not aware about the development in the case.”
