Former Deputy chief minister and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today dared the Congress government to prove he recommended pardon to four cops who abducted and killed an innocent Sikh youth to seek out of turn promotions.
“Spreading such canards is abominable” the SAD president said in a statement here adding the file making out a case for pardon to the four cops did not come to him for consideration in any manner whatsoever. “I would also like to make it clear that there is no question of me signing any such file”, he added.
The SAD president also asked the government to come clean on the issue and lay all facts before the people. “It should be ascertained as to in whose term the file was sent to the Governor and in whose term the order to grant pardon to the killer cops was implemented”.
