A Special Task Force (STF) team on Wednesday took arrested crime investigating agency (CIA) inspector Inderjit Singh and searched his ancestral house in Krishangarh locality of Amritsar city.

Inderjit was arrested on Friday after an AK-47, 4 kg heroin and Rs 16 lakh were recovered from his official quarters in Phagwara.

The search lasted for over four hours but officials remained tight-lipped over the recoveries. Assistant inspector general (AIG), STF, Rachpal Singh said some ‘objectionable material’ was found but did not share the exact details.

The police had sealed the house after Inderjit’s arrest.

The STF team, which was carrying Inderjit along, entered the house at around 12 noon and closed the main gate. During the time of search, the house was closely guarded by the police and nobody was allowed inside.

Later, the AIG said, “We have seized some material related to the investigation from his ancestral house. I cannot share the details as only senior officers will talk on this.”

A neighbour, whom the police took inside during the search, said cops took some documents along but nothing objectionable was found in the house.
