Harpreet Kaur, 17, of Rakra Bet village has accused Balachaur deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Lakhvir Singh of misbehaving with her in his office.

She alleged that the incident took place when she along with her relatives went to meet him with regard to her mother's suicide case. Her mother committed suicide on January 24.

Kaur alleged that the DSP had called her to his office to give her statement in the case.

She said the police had registered a case against her father Avtar Singh and her five relatives, including two uncles, for her mother's suicide. Now, they are lodged in the Ludhiana jail.

Kaur said after her mother's death, her mother's brother Ram Lal and his wife took her to their house in Chahla village and then ill-treated her. She alleged that they also beat her up many a time.

On September 29, she went back to her father's sister house in Rakra Bet village and sent a communiqué in written to the police that she did not want to live with her mother's brother.

The DSP had called her to the office on October 22 in this regard and she along with her relatives went to meet him.

She alleged that when she went to meet him, he misbehaved with her and pressurised her to settle the case with her uncle and give statement in his favour. However, she refused to do so.

She alleged that he also misbehaved with her brother when she said she wanted to stay with him and passed nasty comments against her aunts.

Her uncle Resham Kainth alleged that they had gone to the DSP's office in search of justice, but he not only disappointed them, but also misbehaved with them.

Kainth said they had sent a complaint to deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal through ADC Amarjeet Pal, who in turn marked the case to the SSP for investigation into the misconduct of the DSP.

Refuting the allegations, Balachaur DSP Lakhvir Singh said he never misbehaved with the girl and others who came to his office.

He said he even gave his mobile number to the girl for any help in the future as her father was in jail and mother was no more. He said he motivated Harpreet's brother to work hard and asked him to take care of his sister.

Attempts were made to contact SSP Dhanpreet Kaur, but she did not respond.
