Malerkotla, May 13

Acting with speed and agility, the Punjab Police on Monday cracked the Malerkotla sacrilege case, finding it the result of an accidental fire which the Granthi had reportedly tried to cover up with a concocted story of a break-in for fear of being blamed of negligence and losing his job.

 

The case was solved by the concerted efforts of fire forensic experts from Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Sangrur, and the findings were also corroborated by an expert team from Mumbai, led by

Gopal Relkar, which was flown in today by the Punjab Police.

 Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh lauded the collaborative efforts of these teams, under the guidance of SSP Sangrur, Sandeep Garg, and IG Patiala, AS Rai, with DGP Dinkar Gupta also monitoring the investigations and assessing the situation on the spot. Captain Amarinder commended the police for unraveling the case, which had the potential of sparking communal tensions in the state,  in record time, unlike during the regime of the Akalis, who had failed to crack any of the sacrilege cases which had rocked their government, especially in 2015.
