A day after receiving a fax message from former Haryana deputy chief minister Chander Mohan alias Chand Mohammad,the Mohali police want him to reply through fax again to the allegations levelled against him.

While repeated calls made to the UK number from which the fax was sent to the Mohali Senior Superintendent of Police on Friday night went unanswered till Saturday evening,the police are trying to send the message to Chand through his local contacts.

“If he is unable to appear before us,we want him to send us his reply to the allegations made by Fiza through fax,so that we can take note of his statement in the ongoing inquiry into the criminal complaint against him,” SP (City) Varinder Pal Singh said.

On February 16,Singh was assigned investigation into the charges of rape,cheating,hurting religious sentiments,defamation and criminal intimidation levelled against Chand by his second wife Anuradha Bali alias Fiza.

In his message to the SSP,Chand had said he would return in April and join investigations. “We cannot wait till April,but will certainly give him a couple of days to reply before concluding our investigation,” said the SP (City). He made it clear that if Chand failed to submit his reply in the next few days,he would conclude the inquiry report ex parte and submit it to the SSP for initiating appropriate action as per law.

Fiza termed the development as Chand’s “delaying tactics”. “It is all political drama,which he is enacting to run away from the course of law,” she said.

Fiza accused Chand of making a “lame excuse” of going abroad for medical treatment. “Is he being treated for his mental illness?” she asked.

Local leaders of Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) and Shiv Sena (Hindustan) have,meanwhile,pledged support to Fiza in her “fight” and threatened stir if the police failed to take action against Chand.
