Govt should come clean on former J&K DSP Davinder Singh: Congress
The Congress on Sunday said the Narendra Modi government should come clean on former Jammu and Kashmir police officer Davinder Singh who was sacked on May 20 on charges of having links with terrorists.
“Who is J&K DSP, Davinder Singh? Why can’t the Government hold an enquiry? Why does the enquiry threaten national security?” Congress communications chief Randeep Surjewala tweeted.
“What is his role, if any, in (the) Pulwama (attack)? Who was he arrested with? What’s the name of his accomplices? What is the Modi Government hiding? Nation has a right to know!”
The order signed by lieutenant governor Manoj Sinha on May 20 said the Lt Governor was satisfied “that the activities of Mr Davinder Singh, DSP Pulwama, are such as to warrant his dismissal.”
However, the order also said the Lt Governor was “satisfied that in the interest of the security of state, it is not expedient to hold an enquiry in the case of Mr Davinder Singh.”
The Congress wants to know how an inquiry into a senior police officer’s alleged terror links can hurt the interests of State security.
