The sensational murder case of national shooter and advocate Sukhmanpreet Singh ‘ Sippy’ has been transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Appearing before a court on Friday, station head officer of the Sector 26 police station Poonam Dilawari, who is also the investigating officer in the case, said the probe had been transferred to the CBI.

Sippy was gunned down at a park in Sector 27 on September 20, 2015. The role of a daughter of sitting Punjab and Haryana high court judge is under the scanner in the case. The police, however, did not submit any written document in the court and sought time for the same following which the case was adjourned for February 12.

Confirming the development, UT adviser Vijay Dev said the inquiry into the case has been marked to the CBI.

Additional district attorney Ashok Rohilla said: “The court is yet to receive an official order from the police mentioning the transfer of the case to the CBI”.

During last hearing in the case on January 8, the daughter of a Punjab and Haryana high court judge and suspect in the case had requested the court to conduct lie-detection and brainmapping tests on the deceased’s mother and brother.

Earlier, the police had moved an application on December 14, 2015, in the court seeking permission to conduct lie-detection tests on the suspect.

Submitting a reply against the police application on January 8, suspect’s counsel Matvinder Singh requested that directions be issued for similar tests to be performed on Sippy’s mother Deepinder Kaur and his brother Jasman Preet Singh to “expose bundle of lies weaved by them”.

Hope floats for victim’s kin

SAS Nagar: The transfer of the case to the CBI has rekindled hopes of the victim’s family of getting justice. Talking to the media at her residence here on Friday, Sippy’s mother Deepinder Kaur said: “The police failed to act despite having clues. I had told the police that my son’s ex-girlfriend, daughter of a high court judge, was involved in the murder. Sippy had told me on September 20, when he was shot dead, that she wanted to meet him. The girl killed my son as we had turned down her marriage proposal.” Sippy’s brother Jasman Preet Singh said: “Why the suspect’s mother, who is a judge in the Punjab and Haryana high court, has not been transferred?”
