A delegation of opposition leaders under the leadership of Sukhpal Singh Khaira and Dr. Gandhi Ex-MP today submitted a memorandum to V.P.Singh Badnore, the Governor of Punjab requesting him to recall the orders granting pardon to four cops sentenced to life imprisonment by the special CBI court of Patiala in a case of fake encounter of Harjit Singh of village Saharan Majra in Ludhiana district.
Khaira in a statement said that they had apprised the Governor of real facts of the case and sought to review the case file. They told the Governor that his decision to grant pardon to the convicted cops was violation of constitution and the law of land.
He said that SAD-BJP government led by Parkash Singh Badal had sent the file for grant of pardon to four policemen on March 8,2017, few days before election results were declared. Khaira said that Sukhbir Badal was home minister at that time and he was instrumental in pleading the case of convicted policemen.
