Lahore: A copy of the FIR registered against Bhagat Singh in the then Lahore SSP’s murder case in 1928 has been sought here to prove the innocence of the legendary freedom fighter.
Petitioner Imtiaz Rashid Qureshi, chairman of the Bhagat Singh Memorial Foundation, had filed a petition seeking attested copy of the FIR registered against Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru for allegedly killing then SSP John P Saunders.
The additional district and sessions court on April 11 had ordered the police to provide Qureshi a copy of the FIR.
During yesterday’s hearing, Qureshi told the court that he had showed the court order to the police but they refused to give him a copy of the FIR.
The sessions court issued a notice to Lahore Police chief Chaudhry Shafiq regarding compliance of the court’s order.
