The Punjab government, on Friday, apprised the Punjab and Haryana High Court that it has no objection if the Amritsar Improvement Trust case is shifted to another court in Mohali. A Punjab law officer submitted the stand during the resumed hearing of a petition filed by Captain Amarinder Singh - an accused in the case - wherein he has sought transfer of investigation of the case outside Punjab.
Not expecting a fair investigation and trial in Punjab, Amarinder had petitioned the high court demanding transfer of the case to any other state outside Punjab .
Appearing on behalf of Amarinder, senior lawyers R S Cheema and APS Deol asked the court to record the statement and submitted they would seek instructions in this regard from their client, Amarinder. The petitioner had earlier expressed some reservation about the case being heard by the Mohali Court.
After hearing both the sides, the HC has fixed December 6 for next date of hearing.
Amarinder, in his petition, had also levelled allegations of bias against the state government, the prosecuting agency as well as the presiding officer.
