Punjab & Haryana High Court issues notices to Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal and Harsimrat Badal

The Punjab and Haryana high court recently issued notices to Punjab state’s Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal and his wife and Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal among some other people in connection with a demand for a CBI investigation into last month’s Moga girl molestation in running bus case. The girl, who was molested by the bus conductor and his accomplice, later died in a hospital.

The ruling Badal family tried to put the case into cold bag through a monetary/money deal with the victim’s family. 

It may be noted here the bus in which the appalling girl molestation incident occurred belonged to private sector transport company Orbit Aviation, which is owned by Punjab State deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal and his wife.

The petitioner asked in the application that the deputy CM and his wife should also be made accused in the case as was done in the brutal Delhi rape case in December 2012.

Let me say, just issuing the notices is not sufficient. The court should make sure that the ongoing investigation in the Moga bus case must be impartial and free from any political pressure. Like anybody, else the court should also keep it in mind that the case could be influenced as Orbit Aviation stake owners have political powers, and the suspects are directly linked to them.
