Ten days after a building inspector of the Municipal Corporation (MC), who had gone missing with files pertaining to a legal case of the civic body, was admitted to the General Hospital (GH), Sector 6, the Panchkula police is yet to record his statements.
The inspector, Sanjeev Kumar, was admitted to the hospital after he was found in a semi-conscious condition in a bus coming from Saharanpur to the Sector 17 bus stand,
When questioned about Kumar’s condition, Dr Rajeev Trehan from GH-6 said, “He was diagnosed with mental illness, following which I had advised a week-long rest. He was under medication. But now he has shown marked improvement and is fit to record his statements before the police.”
Station House Officer (SHO) Inspector Sudhir Singh said the police were waiting for Kumar’s observation period to get over.
“We have been informed by the doctors to wait for a week. After that we will record his statements,” said Singh.
Meanwhile, the investigation into the case is yet to gather pace, with no information about the whereabouts of the missing files.
As reported in Newsline, the alleged hesitancy on part of Kumar to join the investigation has also raised questions, and could invite an action from MC officials if Kumar’s involvement is found in the case of missing files. A Delhi-based company allegedly owes the Panchkula civic body over Rs 2.46 crore.
