Capt. fooling people with SITs and panels in Guru Granth Sahib sacrilege cases: Chugh
Chandigarh, (Gurpreet) BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh today blasted the Amarinder Singh government for taking recourse to evasive methods to shield and protect the culprits in incidents of Guru Granth Sahib sacrilege that took place six years ago. Chugh said there is no international conspiracy in these cases that we need an SIT. "There have been a series of incidents of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib following which the Kotkapura police firing incident took place for which simple magisterial or judicial inquiry should have sufficed , but the chief minister is bent upon not letting justice come about," he said.
By entrusting the investigation about the police action to the senior police officers how can we expect justice for all those whose religious sentiments had been hurt? Chugh asked.
In a statement today Chugh questioned the propriety of forming yet another police SIT to investigate the Kotkapura police firing incident after the earlier SIT report was shot down by the Punjab and Haryana High Court and said that the new SIT has been in fact formed to put the entire matter in cold storage and let the culprit go scot-free. He said the chief minister was just whiling away time with the formation of SITs and giving culprits a long rope.
Chugh said after wasting lakhs of rupees from the state exchequer in courts after the first SIT report the chief minister should be held accountable for the failure of the first SIT to deliver. "Amarinder seems to be fooling people by leaving the investigation to the SIT", Chugh added.
