The city Youth Congress (Urban) president, Angad Datta, today demanded strict action against cop, who mowed down two girls here today. He said the incident should be treated as a ‘murder’ and not an accident.

Datta demanded that action should be taken under Section 302, IPC, for the murder of the girl in this case. “Whether the wrongdoer is a police officer or a common man, the law is same for all,” Datta added. He also demanded dismissal of Punjab Police inspector, who was driving the vehicle.

In his statement here today, Datta said, “The Youth Congress has full sympathy with the family of the deceased girl. The CCTV footage has also been released in which girls can be clearly seen stepping back after seeing the approaching vehicle, but still it rammed into them. It is a clear case of murder.”

“Punishment should be given as per what a murderer deserves. The Youth Congress demands a proper action in this matter. The police inspector must be dismissed from service with immediate effect,” added Datta.

According to media reports, Punjab Police inspector Amrit Pal Singh was driving the vehicle bearing Hoshiarpur registration number, said Datta. He was arrested, Datta added. He was currently posted at Harike Pattan, said Datta.

The incident took place today morning at Dhanewali village on the Jalandhar-Phagwara highway. After the incident, local people stopped vehicles and blocked the highway causing a traffic jam.

Notably, inspector Amrit Pal’s vehicle ran over two girls on the Phagwara-Jalandhar highway today morning.

One of the girls died on the spot while another, who was seriously injured, was admitted to a local hospital.
