On Wednesday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Kalyani Singh, the daughter of Justice Sabina Singh, a Himachal Pradesh High Court judge, in connection with the murder of Sukhmanpreet Singh Sidhu.
WHO WAS SIPPY SIDHU?
Sukhmanpreet Singh Sidhu alias Sippy Sidhu was a national level shooter and corporate lawyer. He was also the grandson of Justice SS Sidhu, a former judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
He was shot dead by unidentified individuals in a park in Sector 29, Chandigarh on September 20, 2015.
His murder was followed by nationwide outrage and protests.
The Chandigarh Police had registered a case of murder of the 35-year-old Sidhu at Sector 26 police station in 2015.
In January 2016, the case was transferred to the CBI, following which the investigation was started by registering a murder case in April that year.
The alleged role of Himachal Pradesh High Court judge’s daughter Kalyani in the murder came to light during the CBI investigation.
In order to gather more clues, in September 2016, the CBI announced a reward of Rs five lakhs to any person who gave information in this case and also carried out an advertisement in a newspaper.
WHAT DID THE ADVERTISEMENT STATE?
The advertisement stated that during the murder, a woman was present with Sippy’s killer. The advertisement further stated that the woman could come forward and contact them by saying that she is innocent. It also stated that she was being given a last chance. “Otherwise it will be presumed that she is also involved in the crime,” the advertisement said.
When nothing was found, in December 2021, the CBI doubled the reward amount to Rs 10 lakh. This advertisement stated that if anyone in the general public has any credible information related to the murder or any relevant fact, then they should come forward.
But even after that, there was no result.
In 2020, the CBI also filed an “untraceable report” in court, requesting that the investigation be allowed to continue as they had questions regarding the role of a woman in eliminating Sippy Sidhu.
With gradual progress in the investigation, clues started coming in which were connected to Kalyani.
Further investigation is on.
