Sachin Tyagi, personal security officer of Sukhdev Singh Namdhari, had not informed the security unit of the Delhi Police that he would be in Delhi on November 17, the day of the shootout at the Chhatarpur farmhouse.
He had "clandestinely" arrived with his SAF carbine weapon at Wave City, Ghaziabad, the night before the shootout, the chargesheet filed on Saturday stated.
The Delhi Police began investigations to ascertain whether Sachin Tyagi's role in the incident was part of the discharge of his official duties.
A Ministry of Home Affairs order to chief secretaries of Punjab, UP, Haryana, Rajasthan, J&K, Uttaranchal, Andhra Pradesh and Assam states that "providing security to threatened persons in Delhi falls under the jurisdiction of the Delhi Police. It is also necessary that security is provided under a single chain of command so that there is no problem in fixing responsibility in case of an eventuality.
"But in this instance, there was no communication from Uttarakhand authorities that Tyagi had been deputed for performing security duty in Delhi nor he himself informed Delhi Police's security unit," the chargesheet said.
In his disclosure statement, Sachin Tyagi said, "On November 16, Namdhari called me saying I should reach Wave City office in Ghaziabad that day itself. So, without informing my department, or seeking any sort of permission, around 10.30 pm, I reached the office with my 9 mm carbine weapon and ammunition. Around 7 am, the next day, caretaker Arvinder told me that Namdhari had instructed me to bring along with me the entire Khalsa brigade and others to take over Chhatarpur farmhouse No 42, and that in case Hardeep and his men posed any hindrance, we had to stop them using our weapons."
