The Hush Post: In a letter addressed to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, Inderpreet Chadha, son of former Chief Khalsa Diwan president Charanjit Singh Chadha, who committed suicide in Amritsar yesterday, has elaborated the reasons for his taking the extreme step and has sought justice for his father. Here is a copy of the letter written by him before he took the extreme step addressed to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh:
His Excellency, I am one of your subjects tortured and driven to suicide on account of blackmail by certain greedy and unscrupulous persons. I only implore the attention of His Majesty to give a fair chance to my father to put forward his side of the story. There is so much evidence that has come forth in the form of whatsapp chat and audio clippings that clearly establish that the lady complaintant was a willing companion of my father than a victim of molestation or harassment; not only that, the evidence points to a clever honey trap laid by her and her husband to take money from my father with clever play of romance and gestures.
Sir, when certain video went viral the lady and her husband turned the tables on my father. They also got me booked for threats, a totally false allegation, so that when the blackmailers tear him apart, there is no one to help him legally.
My suicide results out of the malicious designs of Surjit Singh, Inderpreet Singh Anand, Unmat (CA) and certain members of CKD. They are fairly and squarely responsible for my suicide. It is not a complaint but a humble submission that the current CP of Amritsar has very close relations with my brother and may not be able to carry out his functions impartially. The SIT is doing a commendable work, I have full respect for the way they are conducting the investigation. Mr Rakesh Chandra (ADGP) may also be kept out of the picture on account of his relationship with my brother and the complainant .
My father may be spared the harassment and be allowed to join investigation without arrest keeping in view his old age and the false complaint that can only be proved false by him on joining the investigation. Rest I leave in the hands of God. Yours faithfully, Inderpreet Singh Chadha. Meanwhile, an FIR has been registered against 11 persons including the woman principal seen in the MMS who accused Charanjeet Singh (83) of sexual harassment, Chief Khalsa Diwan’s former honorary secretary Bhag Singh Ankhi, two members and senior director of WWIC, Davinder Sandhu, two members of CKD charitable society, Hari Singh Sandhu and Nirmal Singh, besides advocate Inderpreet Singh Anand, Surjit Singh, Ummat, Kuljeet Kaur, Manya, and Gursewak Singh.
Charanjeet Singh was expelled from the primary membership of the society following a controversial video last week. The accused were booked following a complaint by Inderpreet’s son, Prabhpreet Singh, from Green Aveneue, Amritsar.
Inderpreet shot himself on Wednesday afternoon. The police have booked the accused under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) and 120-B (punishment for criminal conspiracy).
Inderpreet’s father and former CKD chief, Charanjit, was booked for sexually harassing a woman principal. Later, Inderpreet was charged with criminal intimidation along with his father. Inderpreet was reportedly upset over the controversy that erupted after a video showing his father in an objectionable position with a woman went viral on the social media.
Inderpreet had got interim bail from a local court which had asked him to join the investigations. He had appeared before the special investigation team headed by ADCP Harjit Singh Dhaliwal on Tuesday.
