Many senior Punjab Police officers in touch with gangsters: Partap Singh Bajwa

Sangrur, June 16
Congress Legislative Party leader Partap Bajwa today alleged several senior police officers were in touch with gangsters, as he questioned the performance of the state’s Anti-Gangster Task Force. What is the achievement of the anti-gangster squad formed by the AAP government? Senior cops of the Punjab Police are in touch with gangsters and know all about them. These are serious allegations, but I stand by my statement,” said Bajwa during a press meet at the house of ex-minister Vijay Inder Singla. Punjab Congress president Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, ex-minister Singla, MLA Vikramjit Chaudhary, former MLAs Ashwani Sekhri, Sunil Datti, Raman Bhalla and former Ludhiana Improvement Trust chairman Raman Subramanium were also present. Taking a swipe at the AAP government’s unveiling of bus service to the Delhi airport from Jalandhar, Bajwa said: “Even for a small function, Kejriwal reaches here to show he is supreme. Can CM Bhagwant Mann on his own not even flag off buses now?” The Congress leaders alleged the ED “unleashed” by the BJP government at the Centre on political opponents had overstepped its brief as it was trying to make the National Herald case a money-laundering case without valid reasons.
