Chandigarh: Former Punjab DGP Shashi Kant claimed that some policemen tried to abduct him this morning when he was going to the Aam Aadmi Party's office in Fatehgarh Sahib to join the outfit.
Later in the day, the former Director General of Police (Prison) joined AAP at his residence in the presence of senior leaders of the outfit.
Mr Kant alleged that some police personnel in civil uniforms made an unsuccessful attempt to abduct him when he came out of his residence in Sector 18 of the city this morning for being vocal against drug rackets in the state.
He said he immediately called the Police Control Room (PCR), after which personnel from Chandigarh police rushed to the spot and rounded up at least five persons.
The former DGP (Prison) alleged that he was continuously being "pressurised" by Punjab police after he had been vocal about drug nexus in the state.
He alleged that politicians from major political parties, including Akali Dal and Congress, in the state and certain senior policemen were "patronising" drug mafias.
Mr Kant late this evening joined the AAP in the presence of senior leaders of the newly-floated party.
Meanwhile, Chandigarh Police looked into the matter and found that four members of an unarmed investigation team had gone to Sector 18 area in connection with an ongoing investigation pertaining to Mohali district.
"They were duly examined by Chandigarh Police and it was concluded that there was no 'kidnapping plan' of any kind whatsoever as apprehended by Shashi Kant," a police officer said.
However, the complaint submitted by Mr Kant was dismissed as the accusations in it were unfounded, the officer said.
Speaking on the matter, Chandigarh SSP Sukhchan Singh Gill said Mr Kant's complaint had been found to be wrong.
Two senior police officers visited Mr Kant at his residence and reminded him that he had been provided with two PSOs from Punjab Security Wing. They told the former DGP, if he has any such apprehensions in future, he or his PSOs should contact the Security Wing, police sources said.
Meanwhile, Punjab Congress Chief Partap Singh Bajwa condemned the alleged attempt by police personnel to abduct Mr Kant.
In a statement, he said the incident was "shocking and uncalled for". He alleged that ruling SAD leaders were frightened after the name of Mr Majithia had came to the fore in the synthetic drug racket.
Mr Bajwa said Congress had taken up the issue of drugs in Punjab and started a state-wide agitation demanding a CBI inquiry into the drug racket.
He said Mr Kant had also prepared a list of political leaders and police officers who are running drug mafia in Punjab. "He (Kant) had feared threat to his life from the ruling party," Mr Bajwa said.
The Congress leader said Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, who holds the home portfolio, owed an explanation on the issue of kidnapping attempt of Mr Kant.
He said this incident had endorsed the stand of Congress that Punjab police could not probe the drug racket, being under the influence of the ruling SAD-BJP government.

CHANDIGARH, Punjab (January 11, 2014)—Self styled president of All India Sikh Students Federation, Bhai Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad and renowned Sikh lawyer H.S. Phoolka, a senior advocate of Indian apex court, have decided to join the Aam Admi Party (AAP). As per a statement made by both Sikhs, they were joining Aam Aadmi Party with ambition of saving the country from corruption and morality downfall.

They also said that they would fill the membership form of AAP after performing Ardass at Sri Harmandar Sahib, Sri Amritsar.

It is notable that Advocate Phoolka has been struggling for seeking justice for victims of the Sikh Genocide of 1984 on the legal front but he is known as an Indian nationalist, whereas Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad is a self styled president of AISSF. However, later has participated in 1984 justice campaigns with the collaboration of US based Sikh advocacy group Sikhs for Justice.

Although not a Sikh, DGP Shashi Kant who has supported Sikh causes in past has also expressed desire of joining the Aam Aadmi Party. DGP Shashi Kant came into the news recently for supporting the cause of Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa. His role was well appreciated in release of the four Sikhs. He recently blamed the Punjab Police for trying to abduct him from his home in Chandigarh.

    • British account of Akali Phoola Singh   THE DEATH OF PHOOLA SINGH – extract from the poem by R.W.Bingham And fiercer raged the stubborn strife, not so unequal then, But Phoola Sing, the Nihung Chief, had lost three hundred men. Himself once more was wounded, still like a flaming star, Leading the strife, was fairly seen his flashing scimitar: And fiercer still the battle grew, and louder still was cried The “Allah Ho,” from Moslem ranks—”Wah Khalsajee,” replied. And still the Sikhs press on; the Khalsa bayonets thrust, Makes many a brawny Affghan to bite the trampled dust: But Phoola Sing has fallen ;—his leadership is o’er, The doubly gallant Chieftain, lies weltering in his gore. He fell on “Terees” top; he saw the black banner fly Close by his side,— the guiding star which led to Victory; He raised his thrilling cheer once more, the bullet pierced his brain. He fell, on heaps of slaughtered foes;— he’ll never fight again. Then rose from Khalsa ranks the yell of anguish and of ire, They fiercely rushed upon the foe, like a devouring fire; In vain, in vain were sword and lance, in vain were helm and targer Nor foot, nor horse, could there avail, ‘gainst that resistless charge. The Moslem ranks are wavering now, their banners rent and torn. “Wah Gooroojee,” once more the cry, and down the hill they’re As well resist an avalanche, or whirlwind in its force, As try to stem the dreadful rush of bayonets in their course. The plain and hill, were covered o’er, the Loonda full of slain, And since that day, the Affghans ne’er have dared the strife again; But since the death of Phoola Sing, have crouched before our power. While we have ruled by right of arms the valley of Peshawur.
    • Akali Phoola Singh died while in battle against the Afghans, Akali Phoola Singh broke his kneecap and fell off his horse but then re-entered the battle this time on the back of an elephant making him an easier target. He died in battle like a true warrior.  Vaar written by Missar Hari Chand about Akali Phoola Singh titled "mighty friend"     Old painting from Jammu depicting Singhs last battle
