Kulwinder’s kin meet SC panel

Amritsar: While accusing local police of acting in partial manner, family members of Kulwinder Singh (23), a resident of the Guruwali area, who allegedly died in a road mishap, on Tuesday met Punjab SC Commission’s member Dr Tarsem Singh Sialka here. Joginder Singh, victim’s father, alleged that his son was murdered by three persons while they gave it a shape of an accident. He alleged that despite the fact that they had given statements to the police, it registered an FIR of causing death by negligence against unknown persons. He alleged that the police were acting in favour of the suspects and was not hearing their point of view. He said it was murder and not an accident as being claimed by the police. “Division B police station acted on its own and did not listen to our statements,” he said. Sialka assured the family of taking appropriate action after going through all aspects. Terming it a serious issue, he said the Commission would direct the police authorities to add relevant sections in the FIR. TNS
