No relief for suspended ADG G P Singh in corruption case
Raipur:Local court rejected plea of relief and send Singh to jail for another 14 days, till February 15.
As a local court of Raipur rejected an application, seeking relief, submitted by the suspended IPS officer G P Singh, the trouble for the suspended IPS officer seems to be multiplying with every passing day.
The suspended ADG GP Singh, who is facing charges of corruption and sedition, had submitted an application in the court through his lawyer after his remand was over on February 14.
Rejecting the pleas for relief, the court ordered to keep G P Singh in jail for another 14 days, which means he will remain in jail till February 28. He had been in the Central Jail of Raipur since January 17 after his arrest.
G P Singh’s lawyers put some surprising facts before the court. The lawyers told the court that GP Singh was not being allowed to meet his family members and his health was deteriorating. Singh was under the supervision of doctors from Delhi before going to jail. Meanwhile, family members claimed that GP Singh has heart and blood pressure issues and the prescription being written by the doctors in the jail did not suit.
However, the court has directed to follow the jail manual and allow the relatives to meet.
\I am being punished for denying to be a parrot of cage!
G P Singh had said during his media interaction on the jail campus last time that he was made a political scapegoat. “I was forced to implicate former chief minister Dr Raman Singh and his wife Veena Singh in Civil Supplies Corporation scam. As I refused to do so, I was victimized. FIR registered against him is completely wrong,” Singh had said during his media talk.
ACB-EOW teams conducted simultaneous raids in Raipur, Rajnandgaon and Odisha on July 1. On the second day, movable and immovable assets worth Rs 5 crorewere exposed. Official information disclosed disproportionate assets worth Rs 10 crore.
GP Singh has also been accused of assaulting a youth in Raipur, exchanging money with a Naxal commander who surrendered in Bhilai and helping an accused in a case in Raipur. These old cases are being re-examined.
On July 5, the state government suspended ADG GP Singh. Since the month of July, the GP Singh’s legal team had been doing round of the High Court and the Supreme Court, but in vain.
In January, after his arrest from Gurugram, Raipur Police brought him to Chhattisgarh, since then GP Singh has been in the custody of the police.
GP Singh himself had been the chief of the ACB, during which he was accused of threatening many people and extorting.
A diary was also found in the raid of the GP Singh‘s bungalow, revealing some sensitive information.
