Faridkot, July 28

Accusing the Nabha jail authorities of negligence that led to the murder of Mohinder Pal Bittu, a central committee member of Dera Sacha Sauda and prime accused in sacrilege cases, his family members today filed a petition in a local court here. They are demanding financial assistance from the state Home Department.

Relying on the FIR lodged by the jail authorities, the family of the deceased alleged that due to inadequate security and supervision in the jail, two murder convicts walked into the cell where Bittu was lodged and killed him without any provocation.

They claimed that Bittu was the sole bread winner of the family. Besides it being a mental trauma, the murder had left them in economic distress, they pleaded. Bittu owned a bakery and his annual income was about Rs 6 lakh, the family claimed in the petition filed the court of ACJ (senior Division) here.
