Chandigarh: A Mohali court on Saturday issued an arrest warrant against former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini in connection with the 1991 Balwant Singh Multani disappearance case.

The court has directed the police to produce Saini by September 25, according to the order.

Sumedh SainiSumedh Saini Saini, the former Punjab director general of police, continues to remain elusive despite the special investigation team of the Punjab Police conducting raids at several places to nab him.

Saini, whose whereabouts were still unknown, was booked in May in connection with the disappearance of Multani in 1991 when he was working as a junior engineer with Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Corporation.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Tuesday had dismissed Saini's anticipatory bail plea in this matter.

The high court had also dismissed Saini's second petition that sought quashing of an FIR in the case or the transfer of investigation to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

A Mohali court had dismissed his bail plea on September 1.

Last month, the police had added murder charge under Section 302 of the IPC in the FIR in Multani disappearance case after two former Chandigarh Police personnel -- former UT police Inspector Jagir Singh and former ASI Kuldeep Singh who are also co-accused -- turned approver in the disappearance case.
