In her statement to the police, Rupinder, said that she had gone out for dinner with her fiancée Deepinder when Ravinder Singh on PCR duty misbehaved with her. Following her statement DSP (city) RS Sohal was entrusted with the enquiry.

When contacted SP (city) Swarndeep Singh said, "I am yet to go through the enquiry report thus cannot comment."

It is pertinent to mention that on October 26, a group of youth had assaulted Ravinder Singh, leaving him seriously injured. Following which police arrested Deepinder and Harshveer Singh residents of Phase 7, SAS Nagar after booking them under Section 307 (attempt to murder) of Indian Penal Code.

PCR cops are bad news
This is not the first time when the PCR cops are in news for wrong reasons. About a week back two PCR constables: Raghubir Singh and Punjab home guard Surinder Kumar, were dismissed from service and booked for extortion. The cops were booked on complaint of Inderdeep Singh, a resident of Phase 10, who alleged that the cops had demanded Rs 5,000 from his niece Kudrat and her fiancée Kuljeet Singh.
