Many members of social and labour organisations and farmers from the Malwa zone held a protest rally here alleging that the police had failed to trace the missing persons, including some children from the district.
They shouted slogans against the Punjab government and criticised the role of the police. "We had handed over a list to the DIG, Ferozepur, in which we had mentioned about 27 people, including children, missing from the district and the police have failed to find them," they alleged.
"There is no clue of my brother Manoj Kumar, who went missing under mysterious circumstances on May 25 this year, but so far we have not got any clue about him. The police are under political pressure in the case from BJP," alleged Neetu Kapoor, Manoj's sister.
But, the police said that they have been trying their best to trace Manoj Kumar. Jagroop Kaur, a leader of Istri Jagran Manch, alleged that the Moga police had tortured her husband Rajinder Singh, general secretary of the Punjab Students Union, and registered a false case against him only to stop the organisations from holding the December 10 rally.
The teenager cousins of a BSF family from Faridkot went missing in October last year, but the police are still clueless about them.
DIG, Ferozpore range, Mohnish Chawla could not be contacted despite repeated attempts for his version about the missing person incidents in Faridkot.
