No FIR even after Dy CM Sukhbir’s order

Express News Service- Posted online: Wed Apr 06 2011, 01:51 hrs

Mohali : 24 hours later, Mohali police still await formal direction. No Fir was yet registered against Mohali’s two suspended police officials — Superintendent of Police (Detective) Pritam Singh and Phase VIII Station House Officer (SHO) Sub-Inspector Kul Bhushan — on the charge of causing hurt to the religious sentiments. Both these cops were placed under suspension on March 30 for allegedly “hurting the sentiments of the Sikhs by removing a turban of a Sikh protester during the protest staged by the retrenched rural veterinary pharmacists and Class IV employees near PCA stadium in Mohali on March 28”.

Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal, who as the Home Minister, had suspended the police officials, had on Monday ordered the registration of a criminal case under Section 295-A of the IPC against both the “guilty” cops. Surprisingly enough, the local police officials till Tuesday evening were still awaiting the formal order to this effect before proceeding further in the case.

“I am not aware if any such FIR has been registered here so far,” said Mohali SP (City) Harpreet Singh when asked to comment on the case. Similarly, DSP (City-II) Rajwinder Singh Sohal said, “We have not even received any such order as yet.”

The development assumes significance as Deputy CM’s order, which seemed as an exemplary one, was carried in the print as well as electronic media today on the basis of a formal press release issued by the Department of Information and Public Relations on Monday.

The release had stated that taking a serious view of the incident, Sukhbir has ordered registration of an FIR under Section 295-A of the IPC against both the police officers after receiving the report of a magisterial inquiry conducted by Mohali ADC Mohinder Singh Kainth into the “disrespect to the Sikh religion”.

“We will take stern action against anyone found guilty of showing disrespect to turban or any religious symbol of the Sikhs or other communities. There is absolutely zero tolerance on any such act of this nature committed by anyone, regardless of the position held by the guilty. No one will be spared in this regard,” Sukhbir was quoted as saying in the official statement, which further quoted him as directing the DGP PS Gill to ensure complete compliance of the government orders issued in this regard.

EXACTLY..bulls eye...IF such a normal day to dya case as this "needs" so much TIME just for a simple FIR ( that should take 5 minutes). with all 150% of Evidence provided on U-Tube/Media in full colour and audio.....then why so much noise about the 1984 porgroms....SAME SPEED !!! Thousands were murdered (not just de-dastarred or de-turbaned )....so whats a short time of 25 years...because if I use the Mohali inicident as a Yardstick..the 1984 genocide should take roughly 300 YEARS !! FIVE GENERATIONS of BADALS !!..so stop waiting folks and go about your buisness..unless you love crocodile tears...and drama of bollywood...:swordfight-kudiyan:

There is another angle to this. My words will be the most cynical thing I shall ever say on the Internet.

No matter where you go in the world... When politicians are in power for a long time, there are a lot of bodies and more stories strewn about here and there. The police know everything about you. They provided security details, they staked out at your house, they drove you here and there, they took care of nasty business for you. They installed security devices at home and office. Maybe they even monitored your phone calls. They provided undercover protection when your family members vacationed incognito. They are the one's who know what was in the loan agreement torn up and thrown in the fire, the daughter's ex- boyfriend, the son's secret habits, the wife's gambling debts, the political pay-offs, the events that led up to leaving your oldest friend to twist in the wind over some bad political decisions. So before you start filing FIRs an assessment is needed. What are the costs? What are the risks? Who is going to spill the beans? How far can you really go?
