Sangrur, June 15

Almost 10 days after the registration of abetment to suicide case, the Sangrur police arrested state Scheduled Castes (SC) Commission member Poonam Kangra, her husband and their son, while two other sons are absconding.

“A police team arrested Commission member Poonam Kangra, her husband Darshan Kangra and their son Vikasdeep near Ladda village bus stand last night. However, their two sons — Rajan and Anmol — are absconding. All five have been booked for abetment to suicide on June 4 after Sanjeev Kumar allegedly committed suicide by consuming poison,” said Satpal Sharma, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) (Rural), Sangrur.

Family members of the deceased alleged that Kumar allegedly consumed poison on June 4 after he failed to trace his 27-year-old daughter, who had allegedly eloped with Kangra’s son on June 4. Kumar died at Government Rajindra Hospital, Patiala. His family members and neighbours had staged a protest at Mahavir Chowk demanding arrest of the accused.

“We had registered a case against all five after the wife of the deceased alleged that the accused had been threatening to marry her daughter forcibly to their son. After his daughter disappeared, the victim took the extreme step. We have procured their three days police remand and conducting raids to arrest the remaining two accused,” the Deputy Superintendent of Police said.
