Today, Punjab jail department has issue a transfer order of Central Jail Patiala Shivraj Singh Nandgarh and appointed Sucha Singh as the new Patiala central jail superintendent.
Yesterday, Punjab jails minister Harjot Singh Bains made a surprise visit, after getting a tip off that shiromani akali dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia is using phone in his prison cell. On reaching Patiala, he checked the prison cell of Majithia and found nothing. Later he met the prisoners and inspected the central jail.
Today, a transfer order of Patiala central jail superintendent has been issued and Sucha Singh appointed as the new jail superintendent. Presently Sucha Singh is posted at Chandigarh.
It is alleged that Sucha Singh is the same officer at whose residence Sukhbir Singh Badal and Harsimrat Kaur Badal visited during their visit to Patiala on Bikram Singh Majithia’s birthday, who is lodged at Central jail Patiala in a drug case.
Their visit to Sucha Singh residence inside Patiala central jail was confirmed by then jail superintendent Shivraj Singh Nandgarh.
Badal’s close associate made jail superintendent where Majithia is lodged?.Appointing an officer closed to the Badal’s as Patiala Central jail superintendent has raised many eyebrows. It is also alleged that Sucha Singh was also remained posted at Patiala central jail when Parkash Singh Badal and Sukhbi Singh Badal was lodged here in December 2003, after Capt Amarinder Singh formed government in 2002.
When contacted the outgoing Patiala Central jail Superintendent Shivraj Singh Nandgarh he didn’t take the phone call.
When contacted the Patiala jails minister Harjot Singh Bains, he also didn’t take the phone call.
When contacted the IG prisons Roop Kumar, he confirmed the transfer orders of Patiala central jail superintendent. He said “ the orders were issued by the government authorities.”
When the IG questioned prisons that “it is alleged that Sukhbir Badal and Harsimrat Kaur Badal went to newly appointed Patiala Central jail superintendent Sucha Singh residence at Patiala Central jail premises, when the duo visited to celebrate Bikram Singh Majithia’s birthday, who is lodged in Patiala central jail, he said “I don’t know the proximity between the Badal’s and Sucha Singh. It’s a government decision and taken by the higher authorities.”
