The Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) traffic has directed an inspector in the traffic department to inquire into an incident following a complaint made by one of the Traffic Marshals, Gurpreet Singh.
The inquiry has been ordered for certain officials letting a driver of an SUV go from a naka that had been set up to check drunken driving in UT.
Reportedly, the SUV driver, Sanjeev Vilas Rao, a resident of Chandigarh, who was stopped at the dividing road of Sector 36 and Sector 23 was not in a condition to drive on his own.
When he was checked with an alcohol-meter at midnight, he was detected with 349 mg of alcohol in his body, said Gurpreet Singh.
The Traffic Marshal Gurpreet Singh said, "Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Daljit Singh and his Constable Sunil were the ones who let him go. I immediately reported to the DSP about the matter. I spent half an hour in checking this person and I also recovered a pistol from him. Later we established that the pistol belonged to a police official of the Punjab Police".
He also added that the person to whom this pistol belongs is presently a personal gunman to one of the judges. He later came to the spot and verified the pistol. However, the two were made to go away without even issuing them with a challan .
Gurpreet Singh also added that others present on the spot were made to record their statements with the inquiry officer .
"The statements of all the persons corroborated with my statements," claimed Gurpreet Singh.
"Inspector Keval Krishan has been asked to look into the matter and submit a report as soon as possible," said DSP Kamal Deep.
