Murder accused Bali surrenders dictating time and venue
Perhaps for the first time in Haryana's history, a murder accused has dictated the terms, timing and venue of his surrender after alleging that he had been framed in a murder case at instance of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

HARYANA POLICE has heaved a sigh of relief as Bali Pahalwan, accused of murdering a shopkeeper, surrendered in Rohtak. Bali came in a procession comprising of his thousands of supporters from his native village Mokhra in Meham to Rohtak raising Haryana government murdabad slogans, where he surrenderd before Rohtak range I.G. Police, V. Kamraja.
Normally, either the accused surrenders in a court or the police arrests him but perhaps it has happened for first time that a murder accused has dictated time and venue of the surrender. Haryana D.G.P. Ranjeev Dalal A.D.G.P., law and order, B.S. Sandhu and I.G. law and order Akhil Mohammad assisted by Rohtak Police Range I.G. V. Kamraja were camping and deciding strategy at Rohtak for ensuring his surrender. Dalal was in constant touch with chief minister Bhupinder  Hooda, and have reportedly got a pat from him for tackling the sensitive issue without inviting any bloodshed in Mokhra. When the police went there to arrest Bali, he came out as a hero, and heavy police force watched his procession as a silent spectator.
The scenario reminded one of the days of Jarnail Singh Bhindrawala who had dictated his terms to Punjab Police for surrender after his involvement in the murder of Lala Jagat Narayan, editor and owner of Hindsamachar group of newspapers. He had surrendered at Chowk Mehta in Amritsar with much fanfare totally eroding the authority of Punjab Police, executive and political leadership, and even the judiciary in the state. Rest is part of history as not only Punjab but the whole country, including the then prime minister Indira Gandhi had to pay for her life for terrorism.
Now, the authority of Haryana police is eroded, and faith of common men and law abiding citizens is shaken. Today can be described as black day in the history of Haryana Police, and a slap on hundreds of brave cops who had sacrificed their lives fighting criminals.
As a precautionary measure, the police force, including female cops from nearby districts and Maduban, have been equipped with  teargas shells, water  showers and mounted  police were  also camping at Rohtak and  Kalanur areas under which Mokhra falls, and have been turned into a police cantonment.
It is interesting to mention here that a decade back the present chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda accompanied by Dr. Raghubir Kadiyan and Shadi Lal Batra, Congress legislators besides several hundred congress workers, had brought Anand Singh Dangi in a tractor trolly at Rohtak from his native village Madian for surrendering in a court.
At that time Dangi was invlolved in a case of illegal allotment of land in violation of Supreme Court directions. After becoming chief minister, Hooda had withdrawn the case arguing that Om Parkash Chautla had got a false case registered due to political vendetta. Now, Bali is alleging that he had been framed in the case at the instance of Bhupinder Singh Hooda as he had launched an agitation against forcible acquisition of land at village Khedisadh in Rohtak by Haryana government for setting up an industrial model town. Bali has alleged that all the Police officers knew the fact that he was not present at the time of firing at Kalanur but they are helpless due to pressure of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
Those opposing acquisiton of land wanted to install the statue of Manoj who was killed while sitting on a dharna on the main road and agitation, which was gaining momentum day by day - fizzled out all of a sudden. It is believed that a senior cop played a vital role in this misison. Ajay Chautala son of Om Parkash Chautala also visited Mokhra and extended moral and all support to Bali, and reportedly assured that on coming to power, the case will be withdrawn - describing it as political vendetta of Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
