The Punjab Police has registered a case against former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini in connection with the disappearance of Balwant Singh Multani in 1991. Sumedh Saini was the senior police officer of Chandigarh at that time. Balwant Singh Multani was picked up by two officers after a terrorist attack on Sumedh Saini in Chandigarh in which four policemen were killed in his custody.
