Faridkot, May 25

In the mysterious death of a 22-year-old youth in lock-up here on May 19, the police have arrested Parwinder Kaur, a woman from Kapurthala.

She was produced before the Duty Magistrate, who remanded her in two-day police custody.

It is alleged that the Crime Investigation Agency staff of Faridkot had arrested Jaspal Singh, the deceased youth on the complaint of Ranbir Singh, a resident of Nanded Sahib in Maharashtra. Ranbir Singh had married Parwinder Kaur, a widow, some time back.

Before Parwinder’s marriage with Ranbir Singh, her young daughter was reportedly in friendship with Jaspal Singh, the deceased.

It is alleged that upset with this friendship, Ranbir Singh and Parwinder Kaur had made a complaint to the police and Jaspal Singh was rounded up by the incharge of the CIA staff from Ratti Rori village on May 18 night.

On the intervening night of May 18-19, Jaspal died under mysterious circumstances and this death was followed by suicide by CIA staff incharge Narinder Singh on May 19 evening.
