Case against ex-MLA Kangar vendetta: Capt to Badal
Chandigarh: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh on Thursday reminded Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal of his commitment on acting against the vendetta cases registered against the Congress workers. He also pointed out how a former legislator,Gurpreet Kangar,and 21 others were being falsely implicated in a case under section 307 of the IPC. Amarinder alleged that a false case was slapped against the MLA at the behest of his political opponents on the day the results were declared. Despite the ex-MLA having joined the investigation,the police misled the court saying Kangar was not cooperating. It led to rejection of his bail plea, he added.
