Former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini (IPS:1982: PB) has been booked for the alleged disappearance of a junior engineer in 1991. Saini was Chandigarh’s senior superintendent of police when Balwant Singh Multani, the junior engineer, was picked up following a terrorist attack on Saini.

An FIR was registered against Saini and others on the complaint of Jalandhar-resident and Multani’s brother Palwinder Singh in which Palwinder Singh cited Saini’s influence and said they could not get justice because of it.

The CBI initiated a probe against Saini over the disappearance of Multani, who was a resident of Mohali near Chandigarh, in 2007 on Punjab and Haryana High Court’s directions. The Supreme Court quashed the probe in 2011 after then Shiromani Akali Dal-led Punjab government challenged the high court order.

Saini accused Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh of trying to settle a score with him. Saini challenged a state vigilance bureau’s closure report in the Ludhiana City Centre scam in 2018 in which Amarinder Singh was an accused.
