The very very important person (VVIP) movement in the city on Saturday affected the investigation of immolation case of 16-year-old girl.
The police did nothing on Saturday, as most of the officers concerned were busy in VVIP duty during deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal’s visit to the city.
The police have planned to procure the footage of Closed-Circuit Television ( CCTV) camera of Research and Development Centre to verify the statement of main accused Shehzad’s parents.
His parents had claimed that Shehzad was at college-appearing in an examinationon Thursday at the time of the incident.
Nut, the police did not scan the CCTV footage, as the officers concerned were pressed in VVIP duty. Shehzad’s father Khuddus has alleged that the police have deliberately delayed the scanning of the CCTVs.
Khuddus alleged, “I am begging before the police from the first day to check the facts and to talk to the principal of the centre before arresting my son. But the police ignored my pleas and pushed my son behind the bars.”
Sultan, who was allegedly befriended with the victim, and was the key link in the story, had been still absconded.
Inspector Surjit Singh, station house officer (SHO) at Focal Point police station, said, “The police will scan the centre’s CCTV footage soon. The police have been also putting in all efforts to arrest the rest of the accused.”
