In Chandigarh, the son of IAS officer Sanjay Popli, arrested in a corruption case, died of bullet injuries today. In this case, police say he committed suicide. On the other hand, the family has expressed the possibility of a conspiracy. In fact, saddened by the death of his son, Sanjay Popli has made a big allegation against the Punjab Vigilance Bureau. Recently Popli said, "I am an eyewitness to my son's death. My son has been hit in front of my eyes.'' At the same time, the IAS officer (IAS officer Sanjay Popli) said, "The vigilance team has shot his son. While the vigilance flatly denied this and said that Kartik Popli had shot himself.''
At present, Sanjay Popli is in a state of shock over the death of his son and due to this, Popli did not even appear in the court on Saturday, after which the court sent him to judicial custody and told the Punjab Vigilance Bureau that he will remain in the custody of the vigilance until Popli fully recovers. Let me tell you that he is being treated by a special team of doctors at GMCH-32. You all know that the vigilance team along with IAS officer Popli reached his house today, where a huge amount of gold, silver, cash, mobile phones and other electronic devices were recovered during the search. Let us tell you that the Punjab Vigilance has recovered 12 kg of gold and silver from the residence of Sanjay Popli. At the same time, the team said that 12 gold coins, 49 gold biscuits, 9 gold bricks, 3 silver bricks, 18 silver coins, 4 iPhones and 3.5 lakh cash were recovered from Popli's house. The Vigilance Department of Punjab Police had arrested IAS officer Sanjay Popli for demanding a bribe in lieu of sanctioning a tender for laying a sewage pipeline in Nawanshahr. At the same time, Chandigarh Senior Superintendent of Police Kuldeep Singh Chahal said, "Investigation has revealed that Sanjay Popli's 27-year-old son Kartik shot himself.''
The SSP said the matter is being investigated. At the same time, he said that a licensed pistol was used in the incident. A family friend and neighbour of the deceased told the media, "A team of the vigilance department had reached Popli's house in connection with the investigation of the corruption case. Kartik was also present there during that time.'' On the other hand, Popli's wife told the media, "The vigilance officials were putting pressure on us and harassing even my domestic help to make a false statement regarding the case they had registered. My 27-year-old son is gone. He was a good lawyer. They snatched him from me.''
At the same time, showing her son's blood stains on her hand, Popli's wife said, "They took away my son to make a wrong case. I want justice. I'll go to court. (Punjab Chief Minister) Bhagwant Mann has to answer that. My husband Sanjay had to appear before the court because the vigilance team threatened to come to his house. The vigilance team took Kartik upstairs to the room and when I went upstairs, they were mentally torturing my son. Our mobile phones were also taken away. Until the uniform of the convicts is taken off, I will not wash my son's blood-stained hands.''
