Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, February 6 petition filed by Baba Dayal Singh and three others of Baba Budha Dal was today dismissed as withdrawn by Justice R.S. Madan of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. In the petition filed through counsel R.K. Handa, Baba Dayal Singh and others had sought directions for handing over to the CBI the investigations of murder case registered at Civil Lines police station in Patiala district. Describing himself as “mukhtiar-a-aam” of Baba Santa Singh, Baba Dayal Singh had claimed that two persons — Balbir Singh and Darshan Singh — were removed from the sect as they had “evil eyes” on the dera property.The followers of Baba Santa Singh had advised the two and their companions against entering the dera. But they raised “lalkara” and started firing. The dera followers acted in self-defence, which resulted in killings. Followers of Baba Santa Singh also sustained gunshot injuries. Instead of acting on their complaint, the police registered a false case against them.
