Amritsar, May 16

In the sleazy video case, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by IG (crime) LK Yadav has filed a report for the cancellation of the FIR against former Chief Khalsa Diwan (CKD) president Charanjit Singh Chadha and his deceased son. The case was filed by a woman principal.

Yadav said after investigation, the SIT filed a cancellation report in the court through the Amritsar Police Commissionerate in Amritsar on Wednesday.

Sources said the claims and complaints made by the woman principal were found to be frivolous after going through the conversation before and after the video surfaced publicly.

On December 29, 2017, the woman, who served in a school run under the CKD, had filed an FIR against Chadha and his son Inderpreet Singh Chadha, alleging sexual harassment and criminal intimidation at the Islamabad police station in Amritsar.

Chadha and his son were booked under Sections 354 (using assault or criminal force on a woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354-A (sexual harassment and punishment for sexual harassment) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC and Sections 67 and 67-A of the Information Technology Act.

She also alleged that Inderpreet had issued death threats to her over phone. Ironically, this FIR became the reason that apparently compelled Inderpreet to commit suicide.

His son Anmol Chadha said, “I wish my father had not taken the extreme step and had been alive to see it. Still, we have faith in the judiciary and hope that justice will be done.”
