On Wednesday night, a packet containing Rs 15 lakh in cash was delivered to a Punjab and Haryana High Court judge. The person who sent the cash was the Haryana Additional Advocate General Sandeep Bansal.
The Chandigarh Police, who were called by the judge, is now investigating the incident.
On Wednesday, Bansal’s assistant Parkash came to Kaur’s residence in Sector 11 and handed over a packet to the sentry. He asked the sentry to hand over the packet to Kaur. The sentry checked the packet, found the cash and immediately called Kaur. Kaur told Parkash to wait and called the police.
Bansal claimed that the amount was the advance for land deal in Panchkula and the money was meant for one Nirmal Singh and was delivered by “mistake” to Justice Kaur. He said he had handed over the documents pertaining to the deal to the police. The police, however, claimed that the documents didn’t carry Nirmal Singh’s name. The deal was between Rupinder Singh, a resident of Delhi and Rajiv Garg of Panchkula.
The police have filed a daily diary report (DDR).
