Chandigarh,7 July: Panjab University Students’ Union (PUSU) held a Press Conference at P.U. Coffee House (Student Centre).It was presided over by PUSU President Mr. Tejpal Singh Cheema and outgoing PUCSC President Mr. Parminder Jaswal.
Through the medium of this Press Conference PUSU informed the media persons that all the charges leveled against Mr. Tejpal Cheema under FIR No. 8 dated 9/1/2008 have been found out to be false and frivolous by the Chandigarh Police after thorough enquiry and investigation and Cheema has been given a clean chit by the police.
The said FIR has also been quashed as after thorough enquiry and investigation the name, identity and address of the complainant girl has been found fake. The Chandigarh Police is all set to take action against the Girl under section 182 of IPC for giving false information and misrepresentation to the police.
Cheema said that he is also going to file a defamation suit against the complainant once the police is able to find out her real identity.
It is also worth mentioning that these false and frivolous charges were leveled against Cheema just two days after he was appointed as PUSU President. Thus, it is crystal clear that it was a political conspiracy to falsely implicate Cheema in this case so as to tarnish his image and reputation and to defame his esteemed organization – PUSU.
