A 78-year-old city resident is running from pillar to post in search of justice. Alleging that the Punjab Police has falsely implicated his son in a case of a brawl, Ram Chander Sharma, a resident of Sector 43-B, has been denied a copy of the FIR and challan in which his son Amar Kant was declared a proclaimed offender by the Kharar Police.
The senior citizen who has three sons has alleged that in 1991, two of his sons were booked by the Kharar Police in a case of a brawl. A complaint was filed by the neighbour of Sharma. His third son, Amar Kant, according to Sharma, had nothing to do with the brawl. However, to settle scores, the neighbour made a false complaint before the police and got another FIR registered.
Sharma has alleged that two Kharar police officials connived and got Amar Kant declared a proclaimed offender and that without following the proper procedure, the Kharar Police got his son declared a proclaimed offender through a local court.
Amar Kant left India on an immigrant visa on July 4, 1991. After a local court had convicted one of Sharma's sons on charges of causing hurt, the Punjab and Haryana High Court acquitted him (Sharma's son) in 2008.
Since then, Sharma had been writing to several authorities but to no avail. Sharma also sought a copy of the FIR in which Amar Kant has been allegedly named. He has neither been furnished a copy of the FIR nor the challan. Sharma has alleged that his son's name neither figures in the NIR nor in the challan.
Sharma has appealed to the UT Administrator to direct the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Mohali to take necessary and strict action against the police officials who have misrepresented the facts before a local court and illegally got his son declared a proclaimed offender.
