The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday handed over two compact disks (CDs) to a Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Haryana Police for verification. A Haryana resident Balwan Singh had moved the High Court alleging that the Haryana Police, under pressure from Chief Parliamentary Secretary (CPS) Rao Dan Singh, had falsely implicated a school teacher in a rape case.
The petitioner, Balwan Singh, also produced a CD that showed a Haryana police official on camera claiming that he was allegedly under the pressure of one "Rao Singh." The petitioner said he had conducted a sting operation on the police officer. The High Court, in March 2011, had issued notices to the state government and sought its response.
In a twist on Monday, Rao Dan Singh's counsel produced a CD, which allegedly showed the petitioner telling a person (on camera) that he had filed the petition to extort crores of rupees from the chief parliamentary secretary. Rao Dan Singh on Monday stated that the petitioner is neither an accused nor a complainant in the case and hence has no locus standi. He alleged that the petition has been filed with the sole objective of extorting money. Taking cognisance, the High Court handed over the two CDs to the Haryana DIG and ordered verification.
