A Special CBI court on Wednesday issued a notice to a CBI inspector, asking him to file a response regarding a complaint of 'harassment' against him.
According to the complainant, Jaspinder Singh, he was supposed to appear before the court for a trial evidence on December 3, 2013. However the investigating officer (IO) in the case, R S Gunjyal, started calling him a week before the hearing, asking him not to depose before the court. When Singh asked for a reason, he was told by the IO that "before appearing in the court he would teach him what to speak there".
Singh said when he denied to follow Gunjyal's directions, he was told that his "entire family will be put behind the bars by implicating them in false cases". He first moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court, but was directed to file his application in the trial court. Following this, he filed an application seeking relief at the Special CBI court.
Further, Singh said that on December 3, when he came to the court for the evidence, he was not allowed to appear before the court and "was forced to write an application seeking the adjournment of the case citing some urgent work" as reason.
Jaspinder Singh, a resident of Manimajra, on February 11 last year had filed a complaint with the CBI after the accused, Balraj Singh, patwari of the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation, demanded a bribe of Rs 2 lakh from him.
CBI sleuths arrested the patwari from the parking lot of Chandigarh District Courts on February 13 while he was accepting the bribe.
Singh had approached the accused to get NOC for getting a house transferred in his and his brother's name that belonged to his grandmother. As per CBI, the patwari visited the site and demanded the bribe for submitting site verification report in the complainant's favour and for getting the NOC. A trap was laid on February 13 and the accused was arrested and a case was registered under different sections of Prevention of Corruption Act.
