In-laws of the Delhi-based newlywed, Harjinder Kaur, who has been protesting for the arrest of her husband and his family since May 9, have broken their silence and filed a counter complaint against Kaur with the police commissioner.

Complainant Harjinder Kaur's in-laws have demanded to cancel the FIR registered against them on May 10 immediately. They have also demanded that Harjinder Kaur be booked for blackmailing them and illegally confining her husband at Delhi.

In his complaint, Kaur's father-in-law Tirlok Singh Manchanda, a resident of Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, alleged that his son Gurmit Singh Manchanda was living at his in-laws house in Delhi. He alleged that his daughter-in-law had illegally confined his son and demanded `10 lakh from him.

He said on the intervening night of May 8 and 9, his son had sent a text in his mobile asking for saving his life.

Manchanda said, “We had forwarded the same text to Delhi police, but to no avail. On May 9, Harjinder Kaur, along with his father, mother and other unidentified persons accused attacked us with bricks and stones. I got medical examination done from the civil hospital in this context on May 10, and filed a complaint with the police, but the police did not take action.”

On the other hand, Harjinder Kaur has refuted the allegations levelled by her father-in-law. She said the accused have been opting every possible tactic to save themselves. They have been filing baseless complaints against her to pressurise her, so that she could not pursue the cases against them.

It is pertinent to mention that Harjinder Kaur on May 13 had given 48 hours ultimatum to the police to arrest other in-laws. Her mother-in-law was arrested on May 11.
