Drug racket case: Important decision of the High Court on the fourth sealed report, refused to open the report – Punjabi news | Drug racket case decision of High Court on fourth sealed report known in Punjabi

The Punjab-Haryana High Court has refused to open the fourth sealed report submitted by the SIT of DGP Siddharth Chattopadhyay in the drug trade case worth thousands of crores of Punjab. Along with this, the High Court has given him a double blow by lifting the stay on the investigation in the case of incitement to suicide.

In 2018, the High Court constituted a SIT comprising then DGP Siddharth Chattopadhyay, ADGP Prabodh Kumar and Kunwar Vijay Pratap to probe former SSP Rajjit Hundal’s allegations of involvement in drug trade. The SIT had submitted four sealed reports in the High Court, which were kept under seal in the High Court for the last five years. On March 28, the High Court opened three of these reports and ordered the Punjab Police to take action, but refused to open the fourth report.

Before opening it, the High Court had asked former DGP Suresh Arora and Dinkar Gupta to present their case. Both the DGPs had objected to this fourth report and said that Siddharth Chattopadhyay had given this fourth report to tarnish their image. The high court said that the fourth report was signed only by SIT chief Siddharth Chattopadhyay and not by other members. In such a case, no order can be given to open it and take action on it. With this order of the High Court, DGP Suresh Arora and Dinkar Gupta have got a big relief.

The investigation against Chattopadhyay has been stopped

The High Court has also approved the application of the Punjab Police, in which the High Court was urged to lift the stay on the investigation against Siddharth Chattopadhyay in the suicide case of Inderpreet Chadha, son of the former chairman of the Chief Khalsa Diwan. The High Court lifted the stay order and allowed the police to proceed with the investigation. The High Court is yet to issue a detailed order in this matter.
