The young girl from Usma village in Tarn Taran district who along with her father was mercilessly beaten up by Punjab Police personnel on March 4 appeared before National Commission for Scheduled Castes and Tribes vice-chairman Dr Raj Kumar Verka on Sunday and complained about her security apparatus.

She maintained that the Central Reserve Police Force men deputed for her security had restricted her and her family's movements to a large extend. The CRPF personnel question her as well as her family's movement and do not allow them to even meet their relatives, she told Dr Verka.

The 22-year-old victim also told the commission vice-chairman that while the Supreme Court had directed that two vehicles be deputed with the security detail, they have been given only one vehicle.

Following the meeting, Dr Verka took up the matter with CRPF commandant in Amritsar and asked them to instruct their men to behave appropriately with the family. He also contacted the Tarn Taran deputy commissioner for providing the family one more vehicle and urged the department of social welfare to provide them financial help too.
