Amritsar, October 20
On the orders of the Punjab Government, the Amritsar rural police dismissed from service Sub-Inspector Sandeep Kaur, the prime suspect in the double suicide case, here today. She was posted at the Mehta police station before she went into hiding after the suicides.
Vikramjit Singh, a jeweller and resident of Navapind village, had committed suicide in a hotel room on October 10. In his suicide note, and video and audio messages, he had accused the SI and her accomplices of harassment and blackmail. He alleged they had extorted around Rs 18 lakh from him. A day later, his wife Sukhbir Kaur ended her life at her residence in Navapind village.
Two cases of abetment to suicide were filed against the SI and her unidentified accomplices in this regard.
SSP (Amritsar rural) Dhruv Dahiya, in an order today, pointed out that as the departmental probe would take time, it would not be in public interest for the SI to continue in service. The crime allegedly perpetrated by her pointed towards criminal mindset and her ability to harm the inquiry officer, he said. She has been dismissed from service with effect from October 20.
