UK installed spying chips in me: NRI requests MHA to remove them
CHANDIGARH: A United Kingdom-based NRI who claims ‘spying chips’ were installed in his body would be examined at Jalandhar’s Army hospital after the Ministry of Home Affairs forwarded his plea requesting their removal to the Punjab government.
Harinder Pal Singh, who returned from the UK three years ago, claimed British police had installed chips in his body for spying. Harinder, who is the son of Indian Olympic hockey player and Arjuna awardee Jagjit Singh, said he had requested the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to get the chips removed. The MHA referred the issue to the Punjab government, which then forwarded it to Jalandhar Deputy Commissioner K K Yadav. “This case was referred to us by the State home department,” Yadav said.
Narrating his bizarre-sounding story, Singh, who hails from Sansarpur known as India’s hockey nursery, claimed, “I went to UK in 1987 at the age of 15 with my grandmom. One day, I was sleeping in my room and some plainclothes policemen made me unconscious and got instruments installed in my body.”
“In 1996, my nearly four-year-old daughter died in an accident, which was changed into murder. I was convicted for it and sentenced to 15 years. After completing my jail term on February 13, 2013, I was deported,’’ he claimed.
