Chandigarh November 15- The Shiromani Akali Dal today demanded the immediate removal of the IG Police (Punjab) Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh as member of the SIT set up by the Punjab Government under the chairmanship of the ADGP Mr Prabodh Kumar .
“The utterly unwarranted, unprofessional and biased utterances of Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh before the media have revealed a shocking degree of personal prejudice and malice in the officer, putting a serious question mark over his credibility, professional competence , impartiality and integrity. This will completely defeat the purpose of a free and fair inquiry . In the interest of the people of Punjab having faith in the fairness and credibility of the probe, it is absolutely imperative that Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh be removed from the the SIT as member. Further, appropriate disciplinary proceedings must be initiated against the officer under the relevant provisions of law and conduct rules in the light of his utterances and actions unbecoming of the high office he occupies,” said Dr Daljeet Singh Cheema and Mr Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal, the Senior Vice Presidents of the SAD here this afternoon
Dr Cheema and Mr Grewal , who were addressing mediapersons at the party headquarters disclosed that the a communication in this regard has been sent to to the Punjab Chief Secretary.
The Akali leaders however firmly and categorically reiterated that both the former Chief Minister Sardar Parkash Singh Badal and SAD President Sardar Sukhbir Singh Badal “will fully cooperate with the SIT’s probe. We are more keen than anybody else that truth be fully brought out at th earliest. Both Sardr Badal and Sardar Sukhbir Singh have always had the highest respect for the law of the land and are fully committed to abiding by it.
They also released copies of the communication sent to the Chief Secretary in this regard. A copy of that communication has been marked to the Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh to seek his intervention to ensure that action be taken on the SAD demand., said Dr Cheema and Mr Grewal.
