The daughter-in-law of Nehianwala police station SHO has accused her in-laws of dowry harassment and alleged that her parents were implicated in a false case.

Rajdeep Kaur, wife of Gagandeep Singh, in a press conference on Wednesday alleged that her in-laws, including her father-in-law Mahinderjit Singh, who is the station house officer of Nehianwala police station, used to harass her for dowry.

She alleged that on June 22, she was harassed and beaten up by her husband and mother-in-law after which she informed her parents, residents of Poohla village. “My parents came to our house in Guru Gobind Singh Nagar soon after I told them about the incident. But a false case under Section 452 (trespass), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code was registered against my father, mother, brother and another person at Thermal police station,” she alleged. However, denying all the allegations the SHO said that the case was registered after his daughterin-law’s parents and brother beat his son at their house. He denied allegations of harassing Rajdeep Kaur for dowry. Bathinda SSP Swapan Sharma said the police were probing into the matter.
