Chandigarh, Sep 1 IANS | 4 months ago

A senior Punjab Police officer and three other people have been booked on charges of abducting a proclaimed offender from a police station, officials said Monday.

Inspector General Gautam Cheema, posted in the information technology and telecommunications wing, was booked along with three others, including a woman, for allegedly abducting proclaimed offender Sumedh Gulati last week from a police station in Mohali, 10 km from here.

No one has been arrested so far.

Gulati was brought to the police station for questioning. He is said to be a close associate of property dealer Devinder Singh Gill, who was arrested recently by Haryana Police.

Police said Cheema and his accomplices came to the police station in a private vehicle and took Gulati away even while he was being questioned after his arrest.

Gill's wife Krispy complained to the police earlier that Cheema allegedly tried to molest her.

A number of officers, including policemen, are alleged to have invested millions of unaccounted money with Gill in real estate but he conned them.
