Amritsar, March 5

Family members of Vikramjit Singh, a jeweller and resident of Nawapind village, who had committed suicide in a hotel room in October last year, have filed a complaint with the DGP while alleging that they are being threatened by the dismissed Sub-Inspector, Sandeep Kaur, through her accomplices. The DGP has marked a probe to the IG Border Range, SPS Parmar, in this connection.

Double suicide accused Sandeep Kaur was currently lodged in the jail. She was dismissed by the Punjab Government after Vikramjit and later his wife had ended their lives following extortion and harassment at the hands of accused former cop.

In the complaint filed with the DGP, Harpreet Singh said two separate cases were filed with Mohkampura police station in Amritsar city and Jandiala Guru police station with Amritsar rural police after the duo ended their lives. He alleged the police did not probe the matter properly due to involvement of cops in the case. He alleged another cop Navdeep Sandhu got bail in the case due to this. He said now they were getting threats from the accused from inside the jail.

He said on January 25, Sandeep Kaur through the mobile phone of her brother Shamsher Singh, who is also policeman, called them and threatened of dire consequences. He alleged another suspect in the case, Navneet Sandhu, was also threatening the family of implicating in false cases if they given any witness against him.

Perturbed over the harassment and blackmailing, Vikramjit Singh, a jeweller, had committed suicide in a room of a hotel here on October 10. He had left suicide notes, video and audio messages before ending his life. The same day when his body was found in the hotel room, his wife also ended her life at her residence in Nawapind village on Mehta Road here.
