Dhanaula (Barnala), July 13

Punjab State Women Commission chairperson Manisha Gulati today met the family of 23-year-old Lavpreet Singh of Kothe Gobindpura village in Dhanaula, who died by suicide over alleged fraud by his Canada-based wife.

Several youngsters facing a similar situation were present at Lavpreet’s residence to seek commission’s help.

Gulati assured youth’s mother and father of taking up the matter for formulating a policy for such cases at the state and Centre levels.

“I will take this issue up with the top authorities so that such suicides could be prevented in the coming days,” she said. — TNS
