The role of the Khandwala police chowki in charge, SI Sarvan Singh, is also being looked into. The police also registered an FIR on the charge of abetment to suicide against ASI Manjit Singh, who is posted as the in charge of the Lawrence Road police chowki. Among others who were booked in the case are Amrit Lal, Aarti, Meenu, Rajni, Puja and Bablu. No arrest has been made till now as the accused went into hiding after a protest by residents of the Dhakka Colony and family members of the deceased.

ASI Gurnam Singh allegedly ended his life by consuming a poisonous substance following harassment by his seniors. He had allegedly caught ASI Manjit Singh with a woman in an objectionable position. He raided the house following a complaint by residents of the area. However, instead of taking action against the accused ASI, the Khandwala chowki in charge allegedly harassed Gurnam. — TNS
