Scared after Fiza death, security agency owner abandoned SUV
The vehicle found abandoned in Ambala on Friday night, in which a medical prescription slip bearing Anuradha Bali's name was found, was being used by Balwinder Singh, owner of a security agency in Dera Bassi. Balwinder, who reportedly came in contact with Fiza Mohammad a few months ago, has conceded that Fiza had given him the silver Scorpio.
He has told the Mohali police that after Fiza's death, he had become scared and decided to abandon the vehicle.
For this, he took it to Ambala and abandoned it in a remote area. Balwinder also admitted that he removed the registration number plates so that it could not be identified.
For creating an obstruction in the administration of justice and trying to conceal material facts from the investigating agency, Balwinder Singh will now be in the dock. "Appropriate action will be taken against him for concealing these facts from the police," said a senior police official. Balwinder has also admitted that he deliberately concealed the whereabouts of the vehicle from the police.
Fiza had come in contact with Balwinder to hire private security guards as she was apprehending a threat to her life. The vehicle stands registered in the name of Advocate Dilip Mahajan, a family friend and her lawyer.
Speaking to Newsline, Mahajan said, "It is highly surprising why Fiza would give my vehicle to Balwinder. Moreover, I had met Balwinder twice, once in Sector 20, Panchkula, and the other time at Fiza's residence. My vehicle had the Punjab and Haryana High Court sticker wherein my name and coordinates are written. Balwinder could have easily contacted me if there was some fault in the vehicle, rather than abandoning it."
Mahajan further said that the left headlight of the vehicle was broken when he had given it to Fiza. "A day prior to giving the vehicle to Fiza, the front left headlight of the vehicle got smashed,"
