The Supreme Court today rejected the appeal of Surinderjit Singh Mand and PS Parmar, who were holding the rank of Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in Kapurthala in 1999, challenging their prosecution without necessary sanction.The accused are facing charges of illegally detaining Neeraj Kumar from June 24-28, 1999. Three police inquiries made on the complaints of the victim’s mother had given a clean chit to the then DSPs. But a judicial probe ordered by a Punjab and Haryana High Court judge, who was in charge of the Kapurthala’s Sessions Court, had shown that they were guilty of framing Neeraj following his acquittal in a case.A Bench comprising Justices JS Khehar and C Nagappan said it endorsed the HC’s conclusions, while dismissing the cops’ plea for quashing the charges.
