Former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini appeared before the special investigation team in Mohali on Monday in connection with the 29-year-old case of disappearance and murder of a junior engineer, Balwant Singh Multani. The police had pasted summons outside his house in Sector 20, Chandigarh.

Multani was allegedly picked up by the police in December 1991 after a terror attack on Saini that left three policemen dead. Sumedh Singh Saini was injured during the attack. Two-accused policemen turned approvers and recorded statements against Saini, which in turn proved that Multani was tormented and eliminated at the ex-DGP’s behest. This is when the trouble started for the former DGP. After this, two witnesses, advocate GK Mann and a resident of Kharar, deposed against Saini.

Saini had avoided police raids and had not been at his Chandigarh residence since August 12.
