Kolkata: Retired IPS officer Nawal Kishore Singh appeared before the judicial commission probing the 1993 police firing in Kolkata that killed 13 Youth Congress supporters. Singh told the panel headed by retired judge Susanto Chattopadhyay that he had submitted his report to the then Commissioner of Police. "Singh said that he has no copy of the report that he had sent to the then ACP Dinesh Bajpayee. When asked about the contents of the administrative report he had given to Bajpayee, Singh said the report is of the government and he refused to share anything about it," Chattopadhyay said. Singh had moved Calcutta High Court to direct the commission not to summon him. But the court dismissed his petition.
