Chahalís son gets blanket bail
Chandigarh, August 13
Bikram Inderjit Singh Chahal cannot be caught unawares. Taking up a petition by Chahal, son of Punjabís former Chief Minister Amarinder Singhís media adviser, Justice SS Saron directed the state of Punjab to give seven daysí advance notice, if he was required in any case.
Justice Saron had passed a similar order earlier also, but it was to remain in force for four months. As the time period expired, Chahal again moved the court.
Chahal had moved the court for blanket anticipatory bail; or 14 daysí prior notice in any case likely to be registered by any wing of the Punjab police.
Chahal had asserted that he left the country after his father BIS Chahal was arrested by the police on June 10, 2007, and has been out of the country for almost two years now, but wanted to return for a job.
