Sangrur, June 5

After a ward attendant of the local Civil Hospital allegedly committed suicide last night, the police registered an abetment to suicide case against a Punjab State Scheduled Castes (SC) Commission member, her husband and their three sons. The deceased took the extreme step after his daughter allegedly eloped with the son of the commission member.

Sanjeev Kumar allegedly consumed poison on Thursday after he failed to trace his 27-year-old daughter, who had eloped with the son of commission member Poonam Kangra on Tuesday. Kumar died at Government Rajindra Hospital, Patiala. His family members and neighbours protested at Mahavir Chowk by placing the body on the road, demanding arrest of the accused.

"We have registered a case against commission member, her husband Darshan Kangra and their sons. The wife of the deceased alleged the accused had been threatening to marry her daughter forcibly to their son. After his daughter disappeared from home, the victim took the extreme step," said Satpal Sharma, DSP (Rural).

However, Darshan Kangra and his wife denied the allegations. "The boy and girl, who eloped three days ago, are adults. We are trying to trace them but our political opponents have instigated the family of the girl and got a false case registered against us," they said. — TNS
