The family of school principal Ranjit Singh, who had named Dakha legislator and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) Lok Sabha candidate Manpreet Singh Ayali in a suicide note, have asked for a case against everyone the victim had blamed.

The family has also accused the police of inaction and sought the arrest of all accused. "My father was a strong man but they harassed him to the extent that he broke under pressure," said the victim's son, Paramveer Singh, alleging that the police had the suicide note but booked only three people, including school clerk Parminder Kaur; her husband, Happy Sattu; and Kalakh village government school principal Gurmel Singh, sparing others.

He said after his father had caught Parminder Kaur with someone and scolded her, the woman and her accomplices had started harassing him. Paramveer Singh, an architect, said he belonged to no political party but he wanted justice for his father. His mother is principal at the government school in Jagera village.

Khanna's senior superintendent of police (SSP) Harcharan Singh Bhullar said the police would take appropriate action after investigating the matter. Principal Ranjit Singh had jumped into a canal near Malaud on Saturday, leaving a suicide note in the boot of his scooter.

His body was fished on Monday, after which the police had registered a case of abetment to suicide against three people, excluding the Dakha legislator, who is also the SAD Lok Sabha candidate from Ludhiana.

No arrest has been made, so far.
