Tarn Taran senior superintendent of police (SSP) Manmohan Sharma on Monday appeared before National Commission for Scheduled Castes vice-chairman Raj Kumar Verka at the circuit house here.

Verka had summoned the SSP after the Goindwal Sahib police booked Joginder Singh, a former sarpanch associated with the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), his wife, three sons and a daughter on April 4 for allegedly thrashing, stripping and raping a 13-year-old girl at Tur village in Khadoor Sahib subdivision.

On April 9, however, Joginder Singh’s daughter filed a cross-complaint against the victim and her brother, alleging gangrape.

Directing the SSP to cancel the cross-FIR, Verka told him to get the case probed by an inspector general (IG)-rank official under the surveillance of the additional director general of police (ADGP, crime).

“If the cross-complaint is found to be false, all those involved in getting it registered will be strictly punished,” he said.
