Action as per law

I’ll get the matter probed and whosoever is found guilty, action will be taken against them as per the law. — Ajay Maluja, Bathinda SSP

They target families that are not well-off and hence can’t pursue the case later. Manjit first married Kala Singh from Burj Hari village of Mansa in May 2018, left him within a month and fled with valuables. She then married Balwinder Singh of Fazilka and then my brother in November 2019. She fled both times with valuables.”
