Amritsar, April 7
A woman has accused three cops of thrashing her and decamping with cash and jewellery from her house in Mata Ganga Ji Nagar locality on Tarn Taran Road falling under the Sultanwind police station here.
The police station officials said a report was being prepared and would be submitted to higher authorities for further necessary action.
The CCTV camera footage has also come to light in which cops were seen entering the house when the woman identified as Sandeep Kaur refused to open the door.
Sandeep said the accused manhandled and dragged her on the floor. She said several days ago, the Sultanwind police had booked her husband Kuldeep Singh, two sons Daljit Singh and Baljit Singh on murder bid charges. She said while the court granted bail to Daljit Singh, her husband and Baljit were still at large.
She said the police usually visit their house to find them. But she always told them that she did not know their whereabouts. She said on Sunday around 7am, three cops came outside her house and repeatedly knocked at the door. When she did not open the door, the cops jumped from the wall to gain entry into the house. She alleged that they threatened her and asked her to convince the duo to surrender before the police.
She said the accused opened the almirah and took out Rs60,000 cash and gold ornaments from the house. She said when she tried to raise an alarm, the accused thrashed her and fled from the spot. She even accused the officials of Kot Mit Singh police of inaction. She said they threatened her and asked to lodge an FIR against unidentified persons.
Police Commissioner Dr Sukhchain Singh Gill said the matter was being probed and appropriate action would be taken in this connection. — TNS
