YAMUNANAGAR: Call it yet another posture to avoid action, the district police on Monday expressed helplessness in arresting three students of Class XII, who allegedly snipped the hair of a Sikh boy following a spat at school last week.

Notwithstanding the pressure mounted by district units of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Haryana Shiromani Akali Dal (HSAD), the separate outfit who gave week's deadline, the policemen categorically said that arrest would not be possible till they get forensic reports.

Investigation officer Rajiv Niglani said, "We are awaiting the report of forensic experts. They will check if the hair produced by family matches with those of the victim boy. Further action will be initiated only after the report as this is a question of their future. We do not want to show any haste in the case,'' inspector Rajiv Niglani, the investigating officer of the case said.

"As far as prosecution is concerned, we shall submit challan against the boys directly in the court for the purpose of trial, hence arrest is unlikely," added Niglani.

He also confirmed the memorandum received by them from Sikh bodies who sought immediate arrest of the boys involved in the incident.
