Gurdaspur (Pb), Apr 20 : Controversial police officer Salwinder Singh today surrendered before a local court in connection with a sexual harassment case.

A Superintendent of Police, Singh was mired in a controversy after a group of terrorists kidnapped him nearly 30 hours before they attacked the Pathankot Air Force station in January last year.

Police had registered a case of sexual harassment against him on August 2 last year in which complainant Rajneesh Kumar, an employee of Powercom and a resident of Gurdaspur, had lodged that he was implicated in a false rape case.

Singh had allegedly taken Rs 50,000 to delete the complainant’s name from the FIR.

In the meantime he had developed illicit relations with the complainant’s wife as Singh used to visit his house on the pretext to conduct probe, it was alleged.

The case against him was registered after a probe by police.

The bail plea of Singh had already been rejected in the sexual case by a court here on August 11 last year.

Earlier, at least six ladies police personnel had lodged a complaint with Director General of Police Suresh Arora last year in which they alleged that they were sexual harassed by Singh.

On their complaint, a probe committee had found him guilty.

Meanwhile, Chief Judicial Magistrate Rohit Bansal sent him into judicial custody for 14 days.

New Delhi, Feb 21: Train services on Delhi Metro’s Blue Line (Dwarka sector 21-Noida City Centre/Vaishali) were affected for close to 30 minutes on Wednesday due to signalling issue at two interlocking stations, the DMRC said.

“Due to signalling issue at interlocking stations of Subhash Nagar and Rajouri Garden of Line-3, train IDs were lost around 12.30 p.m. for trains falling in this zone, resulting in delays as they were locally controlled,” Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said in a statement.

“Central control for these two interlocking stations was restored at 1 p.m. and trains are now being regularised as per normal IDs,” the statement added.
