SON of former bureaucrats Rupan Deol Bajaj and B R Bajaj of Punjab cadre, has been booked for tearing off the uniform of a policeman and misbehaving with cops in Chandigarh on Friday night. Ranjit Bajaj, 29-year-old son of former IAS couple, had allegedly caused disturbances at a private party and misbehaved with guests, media reports said. Sub-inspector Nirmal Singh was suspended for failing to arrest Bajaj who is still at large. The organizers of the party said that Bajaj and three youths were not even invited for the party, but they barged into the private area and started dancing. When the hosts tried to stop them, they started abusing and threatening, reports said. Police reached the spot, but according to the allegation, they remained mute spectators as they feared to arrest Bajaj possibly because of his clout as son of an influential IAS couple. The other three youths were arrested. The accused later talked to a section of the media and said he was being “wrongly framed” in the case. He said he did not enter into any fight with anyone. Two years ago, Bajaj was convicted on charges of forgery and criminal conspiracy in a case of May 5, 2000 when a foreign-made .9 mm pistol, seven cartridges, two empty gun holsters and two swords were found in Bajaj’s car. The car had a fictitious registration number CHI 1. Singh was also declared a proclaimed offender.
