The ongoing pre-marital dispute between the son of former Himachal Pradesh director general of police (DGP) and the daughter of Punjab inspector general of police (IGP) got murkier, as both parties on Monday accused each other of making advances.

Having been in “relationship” since June and slated to be married in November, both the disputing parties placed before the court of additional district and session judge Anshu Shukla the text messages exchanged between the two on mobile application as well as social networking sites, in order to corroborate the allegations of making sexual advances.

Reiterating her allegations of attempt to rape and outraging her modesty against Arjun Gill, son of former Himachal Pradesh DGP Gurpreet Singh Gill; the victim placed on record the messages exchanged on mobile application wherein Arjun has asked her for “physical intimacy”.

Countering her claims, Arjun Gill too placed on record the communication exchanged between the two, wherein the victim, as per Gill, was making advances at him. The messages were placed before the court during the ongoing hearing of the application moved by Arjun Gill, seeking anticipatory bail after being booked on charges of attempt to rape and dowry harassment by the daughter of Punjab IGP whom he was to get married on November 30.

The court after hearing the arguments at length adjourned the bail plea to November 5.

Pressing for dismissal of the application, complainant of the victim, Rabindra Pandit, said, “Arjun, while threatening the victim on October 2, had talked about few objectionable pictures clicked by him secretively. For recovery of those pictures, the accused cannot be granted the benefit of anticipatory bail.”

Making a case fit for anticipatory bail, Arjun’s counsel advocate AS Sukhija, said, “We have placed on record communication exchanged between the two wherein the girl has made advances at Arjun.”
