Amritsar, October 19

The family members of the accused in the British national harassment case on Monday accused the local police of acting in a biased manner. They alleged that the police did not hear them or hold any investigation before lodging an FIR against their kin.

Addressing mediapersons, Vishakha Sharma, Rubina Sharma, Sargun Khurana and Rupneet Sandhu, residents of Rani Ka Bagh, said the police did not verify the claims of harassment by the victim with the CCTV camera footage of the restaurant. They claimed that on October 10, all the family members also accompanied the accused to the restaurant for dinner when the NRI woman allegedly entered into a verbal duel with their men.

After listening to their grievance, Police Commissioner Dr Sukhchain Singh Gill has ordered Deputy Commissioner of Police Jagmohan Singh to probe the matter. The police have also reportedly suspended a head constable in the case.

The police had booked Sahil Sharma, Saurabh, Sahil Arora, Shikhan Khurana, Ritu Khurana and Gurpartap Sandhu for allegedly passing objectionable comments and assaulting the British woman. She had also accused the police of not arresting the suspects.
