In its 5th interim report submitted to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today, Justice (Retd.) Mehtab Singh Gill Commission of Inquiry has recommended action, mainly cancellation of FIRs, in 41 cases, taking the total number of such cases so far to 258. Among the cases in which cancellation has been recommended in this report are FIRs against Vijay Sayal, Sub Divisional Magistrate, Gurdaspur, and Sikh religious preacher Baljit Singh Daduwal, both of which which the Commission described as culmination of vendetta resulting from their refusal to obey the diktats of former Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal and former Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia. Sayal was falsely implicated in a FIR registered by the Vigilance Bureau, Faridkot, for challaning the Orbit Bus of Sukhbir, who was also holding the portfolio of Home Department. In the case of Daduwal, the Commission did not find anything seditious in his speech at the congregation held on November 10, 2015.
