Suicide: SIT head replaced as kin allege inaction

Suicide: SIT head replaced as kin allege inaction

Abohar, August 7

Acting on a complaint lodged by the parents of a girl who had ended life in October 2018, the authorities have changed the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that was earlier headed by the SP (H), Fazilka.

The new SIT will now be headed by SP (D), Fazilka. The action was taken after the victim’s parents approached IGP Mukhwinder Singh Chhina.

The police had on June 22 booked BJP councillor Rakesh, alias Titu Chhabra, SAD district traders’ wing convener Mohinder Pratap, alias Kali Bathla, his brother Harinder Bathla and nephew Arpit Bathla for abetting a girl’s suicide here last year but none was held, the complainant said.

Adding that all were roaming free and threatening the family, the parents said they were called by the SIT for probe only once. The pen drive that the family submitted as evidence was not returned. “We have lost faith in the SIT, the same should be changed, the parents demanded.

Responding to a complaint referred to the Home Affairs Department by the Punjab State Human Rights Commission on November 10 last year, a case was registered against the accused under Sections 306, 201, 506 and 120B of the IPC.

The commission had taken cognisance of a complaint sent by a girl in the form of a suicide note. The complainant submitted that she was in love with Arpit Bathla and was pregnant with his child.

Abohar SP said the victim and Arpit were studying in Chandigarh and were in love. “Kali and his brother Harinder approached the girl’s father to arrange their marriage. When the girl came to Abohar on October 7, 2018, she reportedly told her mother that Arpit was harassing her. — OC
