A day after three women and one turbaned man trespassed into her home and abused and thrashed her and her three children, former Congress councillor Gurdeep Kaur of Preet Nagar on Sunday alleged that the police failed to take concrete action against the attackers.
She had lodged a case against the accused at the Dugri police station on Saturday, alleging that the attackers were backed by a former SAD minister.
Elected twice as councillor from Dugri as an independent, Kaur had fought the last elections of the municipal corporation on the Congress ticket.
“Three women and a turbaned man came in a Swift car and started blowing horns outside her home. When she along with her son moved out, the four entered in her home and started abusing and beating her and her three children,” the former councilor said in her complaint, adding that she immediately sounded the police, who nabbed the accused but released them later following the order of a former minister.
Following the complaint of Gurdeep Kaur on Saturday, the Dugri police booked Pritpal Kaur, alias, Preeti; Ranjit Kaur, and an unidentified woman and turbaned man under Sections 452, 323, 506, 149 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Sections 38, 76 of the Motor Vehicle Act.
Kaur told police that Pritpal was once her business partner in a real estate business, but they were separated later. However, Kaur said that Pritpal had developed grudges against her. She had attacked her in the past too, but police did not take any action against them.
ASI Jagtar Singh of the Dugri said efforts were on to arrest the accused.
