The case has been registered against 14 policemen of the Hoshiarpur police, including a deputy superintendent of police (DSP), a station house officer (SHO). This incident comes days after the Delhi Police booked the Punjab Police for the kidnapping of BJP spokesman Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga. A First Information Report dated May 6 was registered at the Kunharhi police station of Rajasthan’s Kota city. According to the FIR, a man called Harnoor, 21, from Sawalpura in the Boondi district of Rajasthan was abducted by the Punjab Police from a hotel in Kota on March 7. Nirmal Singh, the father of the man, alleged that his son was abducted for ransom and as they did not give the money, the Punjab Police implicated him in a false case of carrying 10 kg of opium. The man is lodged in a jail in Punjab’s Gurdaspur for the last three months in a case registered under the NDPS Act that was registered on March 7 against Harnoor Singh for allegedly travelling in his vehicle with a Rajasthan registration number in Hoshiarpur and after his vehicle was searched, they recovered 10 kg of opium. However, Harnoor’s father claimed that Punjab Police had picked up his son from a hotel in Rajasthan. His father had even lodged a missing report of his son on March 8 in Rajasthan.
