Family members of Bhupinder Singh, who had committed suicide on June 11, demanded the booking of two more persons, including a former Akali MC councillor.

Thirty-year-old Bhupinder had committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling last Tuesday. He had left behind a suicide note naming three persons for a property dispute.

Avtar Singh, Baljit Singh and Tarsem Singh had been booked under Section 306 of the IPC. While the police had managed to arrest Avtar Singh, two other accused Baljit Singh and Tarsem Singh are still at large.

On Monday, Bhupinder's brother Ravinder said that they had found some documents in which Bhupinder had written that former councillor Paramjeet Singh and Amrik Singh were pressuring and threatening him regarding a property dispute.

"We have given copies of the documents to the police and demanded to arrest Paramjeet and Amrik, but the police has not done anything so far", said Ravinder.

SHO, Division Number 8 police station, Kewal Krishan, said that they were trying their best to arrest Tarsem and Baljeet but they remained absconding.

"We are investigating the involvement of the other two in the case, but till date have not found their role in the incident", he added.
