Mohali:

The closure report for three sacrilege cases filed by the CBI in Mohali court reveals that the forensic psychological assessment, lie detection test, layered voice analysis, handwriting test and matching of fingerprints with those found on posters, conducted on the accused were all negative.


The CBI concluded in its report that there were no eyewitnesses and the “car used in the crime” was actually purchased after the occurrence of the crime. It also could not find any evidence of alien mobile data in the dump collected from two villages — Burj Jawahar Singh Wala and Bargari — on the nights of the crime. There was no evidence of mobiles of the accused matching with that of the dump collected from the villages and no any other alien mobile apart from those of the village residents could be detected.

In its closure report, the CBI said a total of 106 witnesses were examined, of which fingerprints and handwriting specimens of 49 suspected persons did not match with those found on the three posters collected from the two villages.

Sacrilege report: ‘Police could not trace accused or stolen holy books’

The report also pointed out that the local police reached the place of occurrence and made extensive efforts to trace the criminals, but in vain. The police also could not trace the accused as well as the stolen holy books. The police had got the water of the holy pond drained on suspicion that the holy books could have been thrown into the pond, but failed to find anything.

The handwriting test showed that the writing on the derogatory posters did not match with the writing of 10 suspects, including Mohinder Pal Singh alias Bittu, Sukhjinder Singh alias Sunny and Shakti Singh, who the Punjab police claimed were involved in the sacrilege incident.

Similarly, layered voice analysis report of CFSL Delhi said that no deception was indicated in the voices of Mohinder Pal Singh alias Bittu, Sukhjinder Singh alias Sunny and Shakti Singh while they denied their involvement in the sacrilege incident.

“We had moved an application in the court seeking the possession of the closure report filed by the CBI on behalf of the complainants — Gora Singh, granthi of the gurdwara in Burj Jawahar Singh Wala village; Ranjit Singh, president of village gurdwara committee; and Kulwinder Singh, granthi of Bargari gurdwara. The court has supplied the copy of the closure report today. Now we will examine the report and file our protest petition before August 23,” Gagan Pradeep Singh Bal, the counsel for the complainants, said.

However, Bal also pointed out that the CBI, in its report, has mentioned that the probe was de-notified in these cases in Punjab Vidhan Sabha during the SAD-BJP regime and said the CBI still went on to probe the cases and then filed the closure report. “We will challenge this act of CBI in our protest petition, asking the court that if the CBI probe was de-notified, then under what capacity had the CBI carried on with the probe and concluded with the closure report, giving clean chit to the accused,” said Bal.

The previous SAD-BJP government in November 2015 had handed over the investigation of three sacrilege cases — theft of Guru Granth Sahib from a gurdwara at Burj Jawahar Singh Wala village on June 1, 2015; putting up of hand-written sacrilegious posters in Bargari and Burj Jawahar Singh Wala village on September 24-25, 2015; and sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari on October 12, 2015 — to the CBI.

In the Vidhan Sabha session in September 2018, the Punjab government had de-notified handing over of the investigation to CBI due to which the Punjab government has now been termed as stranger in the case
