Just a day before Father's Day, Kulwinder Singh of Amarpura received the shocking news of untimely death of his newlywed daughter Paramjit Kaur alias Pinki, 22. He had wished to celebrate Father's Day with his daughter, but on the contrary he would perform her last rites.
Kulwinder received a call from Jasmine alias Priti, sister-in-law of her daughter, on Saturday informing him that Paramjit is not well. He rushed to her in-law's house at Chawni Mohalla along with his wife Gurvinder Kaur and was shocked to see her daughter hanging from the ceiling fan. He alleged that Paramjit's husband Harpreet Singh, her father-in-law Amarjit Singh and mother-in-law Basant Kaur have killed her daughter for dowry, following a conspiracy.
In resentment, the kin of the victim vandalised the house of Paramjit's in-laws. Police force from three police stations has been pressed in the job to manage things. Following the complaint made by Kulwinder Singh, the Salem Tabri police station has registered a case of dowry death against Paramjit's husband, father-in-law and mother-in-law.
In emotional pain, Kulwinder said, "My daughter married Harpreet Singh on April 20. Harpreet is working as salesman at a garment shop. Her in-laws have been harassing her daughter from the first day for dowry." "Paramjit returned to her in-laws' house just a day ago. I had given her many gifts as dowry, as her in-laws' were demanding," he added. According to inspector Gurbans Singh Bains, SHO of the Salem Tabri police station, the police have registered a case. The parents of the deceased have alleged that their daughter has been killed. However, the cause of death would be cleared after a post-mortem examination.
