The Hush Post: SHO Parminder Bajwa has been sent to 14 days of judicial custody. He will stay in jail till May 25. Before sending him into judicial custody, a medical was carried out on Bajwa. A case has been registered against him under Section 353 and 186 of the IPC.
Bajwa’s recent ‘claim to fame’ was the registration of an FIR against Hardev Singh Ladi, the Congress candidate for Shahkot by-elections in a case of illegal mining.
Earlier today, Bajwa had changed his appearance and was on his way to the court along with his lawyer when he was arrested. He had expressed apprehension of threat to his life from the state government and its officials. He had submitted an application in the Sessions Court Jalandhar, which had been rejected.
Earlier, Bajwa had registered an FIR against Laddi for the alleged illegal mining. This happened a day after Congress announced Laddi as their candidate for Shahkot by-election.
