SAD ALLEGES “SHOCKING LEAKAGEE OF SECURITY INFO” LEADING TO SACRILEGE INCIDENTS, BOMB BLASTS AND BREACH OF PM’S SECURITY
POLICE ABUSED FOR ARM TWISTING OPPONENTS OF CM IN CONG, OPPOSITION PARTIES
Chandigarh : The Shiromani Akali Dal today demanded a judicial probe into reports that the peace of the sensitive border state of Punjab as well as security of the country were gravely compromised by the ruling party by virtually placing the most crucial Intelligence Wing of the Punjab Police virtually at the disposal of a private company and asked to dance to its tunes at the behest of CM and DYCM Punjab and officials and resources of Intellgence wing were misused for giving benefit to Congress party and are still being used for helping congress electoral prospects .
Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters here today, Mr Harcharan Bains, Principal Advisor to the SAD president Sardar Sukhbir Singh Badal, shared documents pertaining to the reported abuse of the state Intelligence Wing by a private company, Movedek Politico.
Bains said that there are credible reports that the highest ranked police officers of the state were asked to collaborate with the private company in intelligence gathering. The Intelligence officers were asked to report not to the state Home Minister, Home Secretary or the Director general of Police but to Movedek Politco.
Bains said that this had brought about “the most unprecedented and dangerous collapse of the ” law and order machinery in the state. When the police especially its intelligence wing was bogged down in gathering information to blackmail and arm twist the workers and potential candidates opposed to the Chief Minister and the ruling party, peace and communal harmony in Punjab was left at the mercy of God. “During this time, the state witnessed a sudden upsurge in shocking incidents of sacrilege, bomb blasts and other shocking incidents violence. The breach of the Prime Minister’s security also happened during this period only.”
Bains said that a proforma was circulated among intelligence officials from the highest right down to the lowest ranks by the said company and they were asked to share intelligence on the website of the company. This he said was a shocking compromise on the constitutional and legal processes.
Bains said that the party demands a judicial probe by a sitting judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court into this sordid and dangerous saga which put peace in Punjab and security of the country at stake . He said that apart from this , the party would also take the matter to the Election Commission as this was a grave violation of the process of free and fair poll in the state. The senior officers of ADGP and IG rank should be immediately transferred to ensure fair and free election,”he said
MMr Bains also asked the state Director General of Police to order a departmental probe into these reports and take appropriate action in the matter “
Bains wanted all the relevant call details of the concerned leaders and officers reportedly involved in this dangerous compromise of security protocols.
He asked the Chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi and the state Home Minister Sukhjider Singh Randhawa to come clean on reports that a meeting of the highest ranked officers of the Intelligence wing of the police took place on December 1, 2021 to analyse the feedback on the intelligence gathered till then and to give further instructions to the rank and file of the department to work in tandem with and on instructions of the private company.
