Amritsar, June 16

A boy, identified as Ankit (18), committed suicide by hanging himself late yesterday evening after being allegedly harassed by police officials.

The family members today held a demonstration against the police demanding stringent action against the accused. The police have suspended ASI Sham Sundar and ASI Davinder Singh with immediate effect while a report asking for their dismissal is being prepared which would be sent to senior police officials for further action. Surinder Kumar, father of the deceased, said in a suicide note, Ankit had alleged that the cops 'placed' condoms in his scooter while he was on way to a market. They sought money and harassed him.

Harpal Singh, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, said the department had suspended two ASIs after verifying facts. — TNS
