Complying with the directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the Municipal Corporation Chandigarh (MCC) on Friday apprised the court that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed chargesheets against two firemen, who have been suspended for their involvement in a case of impersonation.
Two firemen, namely Stabir and Tinku, were arrested by the CBI in 2010 and later, were released on bail in the same year.
Rajeev Kumar Gupta, Joint Commissioner-cum-Chief Fire Officer, submitted this information before Justice R K Garg.
The court was informed that according to the letters dated February 7 and 8 written by the Superintendent of Police, CBI, Special Crime Branch Chandigarh, the MCC was informed that after investigation, the CBI has filed charge sheets against Satbir and Tinku under Section 120B (criminal conspiracy) read with 419 (cheating by impersonation), 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery), 468 (forgery for cheating), and 471 (forged document) of IPC in the court of chief Judicial Magistrate Chandigarh on April 27, 2011 and June 13, 2011 respectively.
"As per the said letters, the cases are at evidence stage and the next date of the case is fixed for March 26," read the reply of Gupta.
Taking stock of the facts, the court of Justice Garg admitted the case and granted liberty to the petitioner to move an appropriate application at the appropriate stage of the investigation.
Earlier, acting on a petition challenging the appointment of 47 firemen in 2010 by the MCC, the high court had directed the civic body to file an affidavit giving a sequence of facts with regard to the CBI inquiry in the case and present a status of criminal proceedings, if any.
Justice Garg had held, "If information required was not filed before the date fixed for the next hearing, MC Commissioner would have to be present in the court."
