Suspended ADG GP Singh Visited the EOW Office Today

Story Highlights
  • ADG GP Singh was summoned for questioning by the EOW authorities.
  • SC on August 26 had granted relief from arrest but instructed GP Singh to cooperate in the investigations.
  • A case of sedition was filed against IPS officer GP after disproportionate assets were recovered during the raid by EOW and ACB.

Chhattisgarh: Suspended ADG GP Singh arrived at the EOW office on Wednesday after he was summoned a notice for questioning.

It should be noted that the Supreme Court on 26th August had granted relief from arrest to the suspended ADG but had instructed him to coordinate in the investigations.

The Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) on the 3rd July had issued a written notice to GP Singh after conducting a day-three long raid that commenced on 1st August. The Kotwali Police had also served a notice twice to the suspended police officer summoning him for questioning. However, he failed to arrive, which coerced the authorities to take action. The police had approached the court to declare him absconding. However, the suspended IPS officer managed to get relief from the court before the police could process its request.

A case of sedition was registered at the Kotwali Police Station against GP Singh for possessing disproportionate assets. The ACB and EOW (Economic office wing) had raided GP Singh’s residence in Raipur and seized documents that indicated serious conspiracy against the state government. The ACB had also seized documents from the state bank manager Mani Bhushan and businessman Preetpal Singh, who are apparently friends of the suspended officer.
