Amritsar, June 14

Two days after the arrest of tainted cop Inderjit Singh, victims of his alleged atrocities have started coming forward. They have decided to approach the Special Task Force (STF) for justice.
The CIA Inspector was arrested by the STF a couple of days ago. It recovered huge quantity of drugs from his two residences besides huge cache of arms and ammunition.
One of the alleged victims Gurparkash Singh, a readymade garment trader, said the inspector falsely implicated him in a case of drugs after he refused his demand for money.
He alleged that during this episode his 6-year-old daughter died of “shock”.
He said he would be approaching the Special Task Force chief in this connection and would submit documents proving his innocence.
The STF was also approaching his alleged victims, who have said they were falsely implicated by him and later released after paying him off.
Certain cops in the Tarn Taran police, who remained associated with the tainted cop, have come under the scanner. Inderjit Singh remained posted at Tarn Taran CIA staff.
Sources revealed that he was the blue-eyed boy of the senior police officials there.
Special Task Force which has arrested Inderjit Singh for his alleged links with gangsters and drug smugglers had identified a couple of cops there and investigations were underway about their role in various cases related to confiscation of drugs there.
If sources are to be believed, certain cops deputed in the STF had remained a close associate of Inderjit Singh in the past.
Meanwhile, eyebrows were raised after it came to light that Inderjit had a brief meeting with a tile trader before he was brought to his residence in Kishangarh area inside Chatiwind gate here today.
Unconfirmed reports suggested that the trader was his relative and had invested Inderjit’s illegal money in the business.
Rashpal Singh, AIG STF, who was heading the raiding party, could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
