The complainant told the police that his daughter had gone to get the clothes ironed on November 1, but did not come back after that.

The girl’s father further told the police that one Ranjit Singh, working in a local mill, used to come to his house frequently. He said he suspected Ranjit Singh’s involvement in the abduction of his daughter. There were as many as six calls for his daughter from Jalandhar on the fateful day, said the girl’s father.

Jalandhar, November 5
The local Improvement Trust authorities have agreed to consider a proposal in connection with the extension of a hospital site to the Guru Nanak Mission Hospital Trust in its Guru Gobind Singh Avenue locality on reserved price to enable the trust to shift its hospital from the congested Guru Nanak Mission Chowk area.

A major problem of traffic congestion at the chowk, due to parking of a large number of vehicles by attendants of patients and others, would be solved if the proposal works out.

Though the trust was empowered to consider and forward the proposal in this regard, the final decision was to be taken by the Punjab Chief Minister, Captain Amarinder Singh, and the Punjab Local Bodies Minister, Chaudhary Jagjit Singh, said Mr Tejinder Bittu, Chairman of the Jalandhar Improvement Trust.

Mr Prem Singh Advocate, head of the hospital trust, handed over a letter in this regard to Mr Bittu, who visited Guru Nanak Mission Hospital and Gurdwara today.

“We are going to recommend the case as once the hospital is shifted from here, the traffic problem would automatically get solved. We have one site for hospital in Guru Gobind Singh Avenue,” said Mr Bittu.
