Court summons IPS officer Kuldeep Sharma in nine year old case

A local court Wednesday issued summons to senior IPS officer Kuldeep Sharma to appear before it on June 14 in connection with a nine year old case filed by police official Kirit Bhrambhatt in October 2001.



Anand: A local court Wednesday issued
summons to senior IPS officer Kuldeep Sharma to appear before
it on June 14 in connection with a nine year old case filed by
police official Kirit Bhrambhatt in October 2001.

The summons were issued by district judge A A Hariyani
after hearing Bhrambhatt`s plea.

According to the case details, while Sharma was Range
IG Ahmedabad in 2001, he had ordered arrest of Bhrambhatt in
connection with a two year old case where the police had
already filed a closure report.

Bhrambhatt contended in the complaint that following
Sharma`s orders, a team of 20 armed policemen arrived at his
residence on October 23, 2001, and illegally confined him
there for over 24 hours. He was released only after orders
from the then DGP.

Bhrambhatt moved court after the local police refused
to register his FIR alleging wrongful confinement and threat
by a police officer.

Sharma, who is an ADGP-rank officer on deputation in
Delhi, recently won a case in the Central Administrative
Tribunal (CAT) against the state government over low-grading
in his Annual Confidential Report (ACR) contending that he was
being targeted by the state government for his proactive
approach in the 2005 Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.
