Former Beas MLA Jasbir Singh Dimpa today alleged that Amritsar (Rural) police have booked two Congress leaders,Master Santokh Singh and Sawinder,in a “false case”.

He said they had contested the last Zila Parishad elections and the ruling party leaders had pressurised the police to book them in an attempt-to-murder case without going through the medical report.

“The police booked them for opening fire and injuring one Kuldeep Singh,but the medical report says that injury marks were of a sharp-edged weapon,” said Dimpa,adding that he would file a written complaint with the Chief Election Commission,Delhi,on Monday.

Amritsar (Rural) SSP RS Khatra said a DSP-level officer was sent to the spot where the firing took place and on the basis of statements by the witnesses,the case was registered. “The two parties clashed over a land dispute and the accused opened fire,injuring one person. The FIR is registered and further investigation is on,” said Khatra,adding that there was no political vendetta.
