HC tells Punjab government to give notice before acting against ex-DGP
Chandigarh, Oct 11 : The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday directed the Punjab government to issue a seven-day advance notice to the former state police chief before taking any action against him.
Several cases of corruption were filed against the current Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and his close aides when Saini headed the Punjab Vigilance Bureau.
Saini, in his plea, had said that the current Congress government in the state could unleash vendetta against him and sought the court's directions to the state to keep his arrest in abeyance for a specific period to enable him to seek recourse to legal remedies.
Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill directed the state government to give a prior notice to Saini in case action was contemplated against him. The Punjab government and CBI have been put on notice for November 28 by the High Court.
