The Batala police are yet to trace out 14-year-old girl from Sangrawan village under Ranger Nangal police station, who has been reported missing since April 17.
Even an inquiry marked by Batala SSP Tulsi Ram against Ranger Nangal police station SHO Kamaljeet Singh, who was accused of beating up two relatives of the complainant father, has not been completed even after passage of more than four days.
The minor girl, who was studying in Class 8, went missing under mysterious circumstance and her father went to lodge a complaint with Ranger Nangal police. However, the police initially dilly-dallied but finally registered the case under Section 363 and 366 of the IPC on April 19 only after area residents warned of protest.
Even though the father named a boy belonging to a politically influential family of the village as the accused since he allegedly called his daughter and harassed her, but the police did not take any action against him.
On the other hand, Ranger Nangal police allegedly picked up two relatives of the girl's family and mercilessly beat them up for supporting the complainant, who were presently undergoing treatment at the civil hospital.
After the matter was highlighted in Hindustan Times, the Batala police chief suspended the said SHO and marked an inquiry against him to DSP (Headquarters) Jaswant Kaur.
The father of the girl has since been moving from pillar to post to know the whereabouts of his missing daughter.
