Seeks copies of his statements regarding police firing incident Balwant Garg Faridkot, May 2 Over a week after the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the police filed the chargesheet in the police firing incident of 2015 at Behbal Kalan, former SSP Charanjit Sharma was produced in the court of Judicial Magistrate Chetan Sharma here on Thursday. The court handed over a copy of the chargesheet to Sharma, who is one of the prime accused in the firing case. In jail since January 27 after being arrested from Hoshiarpur by the SIT, Sharma was brought from the Central Jail, Patiala, to Faridkot for appearing in the court on Thursday. The former SSP demanded from the court to provide him copies of his statements recorded by various investigation agencies regarding the Behbal Kalan firing incident. The court adjourned the matter to May 14. The SIT had filed the chargesheet in a hush-hush manner on April 24 so the former SSP could not get the default bail on April 26 due to the completion of 90 days of his custody after his arrest on January 27. Relying on this chargesheet in which the name of no Akali leader had figured, the Akali DaL has started using it as a defence. Party leaders are distributing the copy of the chargesheet and mentioning Former SSP Charanjit Sharma after appearing before the court in Faridkot on Thursday. TRIBUNE PHOTO ❝In the chargesheet presented in the court, there is no mention of a clean chit to anyone. Rather, we have mentioned that the accused on interim bail are not cooperating with the SIT in the investigation. We are opposing interim bail to all these accused in the HC ❞ SIT spokesman it in their rallies to give the message that even “the Congress-supported SIT could not establish the faulty of their party leaders in the firing incident”. The Congress has pulled out all stops to corner the Akalis on their panthic turf in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections in this area. In this fight between the Congress and the SAD to cash in on the panthic sentiments, the SIT had given a clarification last week that the chargesheet against only one person at this stage should not be concluded as a clean chit to all other accused and suspects in the case. A SIT spokesman said a single document presented as the chargesheet based on the partial investigation could not be taken as an evidence for giving a clean chit to those who were not mentioned in it. “In the chargesheet presented in the court here, there is no mention of a clean chit to anyone. Rather, we have mentioned that the accused on interim bail are not cooperating with the SIT in the investigation. We are opposing interim bail to all these accused in the High Court,” the spokesman added.
