Chandigarh :  Ex- Punjab DGP Shashi Kant claimed that some policemen tried to abduct him on Friday morning when he was going to the Aam Aadmi Party’s office in Fatehgarh Sahib to join the outfit, reports PTI.

Later in the day, the former Director General of Police (Prison) joined AAP at his residence in the presence of senior leaders of the outfit. Kant alleged that some police personnel in civil uniforms made an unsuccessful attempt to abduct him when he came out of his residence in Sector 18 of the city this morning for being vocal against drug rackets in the state.  He said he immediately called Police Control Room (PCR), after which personnel from Chandigarh police rushed to the spot and rounded up at least five persons. The former DGP (Prison) alleged that he was continuously being “pressurised” by Punjab police after he had been vocal about drug nexus in the state. He alleged that politicians from major political parties, including Akali Dal, Congress, in the state and certain senior policemen were “patronising” drug mafias.
