Center Govt asks Punjab ministry to provide security to IGP Paramraj Umranangal
The Union Government has agreed and recommended protection to IG Paramraj Singh Umranangal, who is currently under suspension in the Kotkapura and Behbal shootings. The Home Ministry has recommended to the Punjab Chief Secretary to provide adequate security.
The Punjab Police had written a letter to the Center seeking protection of Umranangal as his life was in danger. The decision was taken after the Center discussed the matter with the security agencies.
After the continuous threats to Ex- IG Umranangal as his life, punjab police demanded extra security from the center. The center has granted the required security with the help of the security agencies.
The Home Ministry report said Umranangal’s life was in danger from extremist Sikhs at home and abroad. Gurpatwant Singh Pannu of Sikhs for Justice has threatened Umranangal and other police officers. In view of this, the Home Ministry has asked Umranangal and his family to provide adequate security.
Paramraj Singh Umranangal Cooperate Fully In The Investigation
Kotkapura and Behbal kalan firing cases are under investigation and the ex IG of Punjab Police is cooperating with SIT whereas others have not shown any interest .
After taking the issue to the center , informed by a letter to the Union Home Ministry. The Punjab Government will be providing adequate security to Parmaraj Singh Umranangal and his family.
To refresh our memories, Umranangal’s father was killed by Bhindranwale Tiger Force of Khalistan in 1987. This was followed by an attack on his ancestral home in 1988.
It is the right time that the judicial system must pay attention to the matter considering the continuous cooperation of ex-IG Paramraj Singh. Another key point to bring in notice is that the other persons involved refused against the SIT investigation procedures.
A quick action by the judiciary system is expected. The case must prevail justice to the innocent.
