    The Jat Sikh minor girl, whose family members allegedly kidnapped and murdered the Dalit youth with whom she had an affair, was traced on Tuesday and presented before the police by her parents. A police inquiry found that she had been at her cousin's house in Theekriwala village of
    Barnala district. The police also arrested a woman who allegedly took the girl to this place.

    The woman's identity, however, was yet to be disclosed. Talking to Hindustan Times, DIG Paramraj Singh Umranangal said the teenaged girl would be handed over to her parents after an interrogation.

    The DIG said Inderjit Singh, SHO, city police station, had been sent to Police Lines and a department inquiry marked into the charges levelled against him by family members of the deceased youth, Gagandeep Singh., The youth's father, Gurcharan Singh, had alleged on Monday that Gagandeep's life could have been saved if the SHO had taken swift action on their complaint about kidnapping.

    Gagandeep had been found dead in a canal near Bhadni Kalan village, 25 km from Jagraon, on Monday. The DIG said the girl's cousin, Billu, had surrendered before the police. The police registered a supplementary FIR on Monday and included the names of Surjit Singh of Lakha village, Saudagar Singh, the girl's uncle, and a third person, also named Gurcharan Singh.

    Four suspects are in police custody, while four others are on the run. After a post-mortem examination, Gagandeep's body was handed over to family members. He was cremated at Jat Pura village. Gagandeep's family members and others staged a protest in front of the SSP's office on Tuesday morning and demanded immediate arrest of all accused. They had planned to block rail traffic, but local leaders intervened after police officials promised prompt action.

    Good thing that the girl was found. Earlier stories were unclear.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
