The Panchkula police are yet to reach any conclusion in a case related to the murder of a girl child and suicide by her father. The police are still trying to find out the cause behind the crime.

They are trying to get the call details of the girl’s father to know as to whom he spoke to in the past few days. The police will also interrogate people with whom father interacted before committing the suicide.

According to information, the police have already taken the fingerprints of father. They were likely to take fingerprints of other people also.

Meanwhile, the Railway police handed over the body to his family members. The Panchkula police would now take the mobile phone, a bag and other articles of father from the Mubarikpur police into their possession. The police would send the mobile phone to the cyber cell for further investigations.

It is pertinent to mention here that on July 18, the body of 10-year-old girl was found in Bandarghati, Panchkula. Later, the girl’s father went missing. On July 19, the father committed suicide by jumping in front of Shatabdi Express near Ghazipur in Zirakpur. A bag and a mobile phone were recovered from his possession at the incident site.

The police are also questioning the family members. Samples of the girl collected by the forensic team have been sent to Madhuban.

Samples will also be sent to Madhuban for further investigation. The police said the murder case would be investigated from several angles.

Chandimandir SHO Arvind Kamboj said the police were investigating both cases from various angles. Strict action would be taken against the accused. He said father’s body had been handed over to his family members after the autopsy. — TNS
