The order was passed following a statement made by senior lawyer Colin Gonsalves that eight women had made allegations of sexual harassment against Singh.

Suspended CRPF DIG Khajan Singh, who was accused of sexual harassment by a woman constable in 2020 but was acquitted last year, may be in a spot again. The Centre has been asked by the Delhi High Court to produce all sexual harassment complaints, if any, against him in the court.

The Delhi HC passed the order on December 14 while hearing petitions filed by Khajan Singh and another CRPF officer, Neeraj Bala, against actions taken by the force against them.

The order was passed following a statement made by senior lawyer Colin Gonsalves that eight women had made allegations of sexual harassment against Singh.

“Mr Gonsalves …states that as many as eight ladies have made allegations of sexual harassment against the petitioner in WP(C) 11729/2021. Mr Sanjay Jain, learned ASG, is directed to produce all the sexual harassment complaints filed against the petitioner in the WP(C) 11729/2021,” the order passed by Justice Manmohan and Justice Navin Chawla has said.

The petitioner in WP(C) 11729/2021 is Khajan Singh.

Khajan Singh’s lawyer Gauri Puri when contacted said she could not comment on a sub-judice matter. CRPF PRO DIG Dalip Singh Ambesh refused to comment on the matter.

Khajan Singh was chief sports officer with the CRPF and had won a silver medal in swimming at the 1986 Asian Games in Seoul. He is also an Arjuna awardee.


The probe against them began last year when a 30-year-old constable, who has won several medals for the force, accused team coach Inspector Surjit Singh and DIG (Chief Sports Officer) Khajan Singh of rape and sexual harassment.

The constable lodged an FIR with the Delhi Police stating the duo sexually harassed her on several occasions.advertisement

The woman had reportedly filed complaints in the past too but withdrew them alleging DIG Khajan Singh’s “great influence” in the CRPF and the Union home ministry.

Speaking to India Today TV on conditions of anonymity, an officer said, “DIG Khajan Singh was posted out for the first time to the Western Sector since taking charge. Sources in CRPF said during the time of the probe against him, he was still trying to return to Delhi hoping he would get a clean chit.”


Khajan Singh is a Deputy Inspector General (DIG) in the CRPF. He is a swimming champion and won silver medal in the 1986 Asian Games in Seoul.

DIG Khajan Singh is also an Arjuna Awardee.

The allegations

India Today TV has learnt that the investigation against DIG Kjahan Singh is being headed by Charu Sinha, a 1996-batch IPS officer currently based in Srinagar.

The preliminary probe was based on a single complainant after which her statement was recorded, along with several other witnesses. The two officers were also given opportunity to explain their position.

In her complaint, the constable had alleged that in October and November 2014, she was taken to a flat in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj, where she was “raped by both Khajan Singh and Surjit Singh continuously for three days”.

“On October 31, 2014 and on November 2, 2014, DIG Khajan Singh and Inspector Surjit Singh together raped me. On November 1, 2014 Surjit Singh alone raped me,” she had alleged.

In 2018, she stated that she had written to the National Commission of Women (NCW), the then CRPF DG Rajeev Bhatnagar and Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba.
