The suspension has been ordered following a recommendation of the SIT formed after the sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in Faridkot district some time back. The SIT headed by ADGP IPS Sahota, Director Bureau of Investigations, went into the entire sequence of events following the disappearance of the saroop of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji from Faridkot. Sharma was SSP Faridkot when Saroop of Guru Granth Sahib ji was stolen from a gurdwara there, an official release said here. He was presently posted as SSP Moga. http://singhstation.net/2015/10/sit-recommendation-former-faridkot-ssp-charanjit-sharma-suspended/ Though the government said the suspension had been ordered following a recommendation of SIT formed to probe sacrilege of the holy book in Faridkot, sources say DGP Sumedh Singh Saini was summoned at the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal’s residence while the core committee meeting was on, and the decision to suspend the officer was taken thereon. The members of the committee reportedly asked the DGP why the incident of theft of Guru Granth Sahib was not taken up seriously at the highest level on time. The DGP is learnt to have stated there that the SSP did not report the matter to him. The members then demanded that he be punished, following which a decision to suspend him was taken. Sources said the members also spoke about the civil and police bureaucracy in Punjab getting out of control and the need to rein them in. To quell the disquiet, SAD president and Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal and SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar suggested that the SGPC members and Akali workers should initiate “akhand paths” in gurdwaras across the state. Earlier in the evening, a delegation of top BJP leaders, including state president Kamal Sharma, former presidents Ashwani Sharma and Rajinder Bhandari and ministers Madan Mohan Mittal, Surjit Jiyani and Chunni Lal Bhagat, met Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and extended support “for any action the government felt necessary to trace those involved in the sacrilege incident”. It is learnt that the BJP delegation stressed that the government should act effectively to ensure that no one challenges the state’s hard-earned peace.
