Hoshiarpur: Shiv Kumar Bawa: Expressing dissatisfaction over the investigation conducted by Punjab Police in the murder case of Jagdeep Singh Deepa resident of village Parowal (PS Garhshankar), the family members of the deceased are seeking CBI inquiry into the case.
Notably, Jagdeep Singh Deepa died on 19th January, 2012 in mysterious conditions and the police recorded the proceedings under section 174 of CrPC. But, the postmortem report said that Jagdeep Deepa died of poison. Then, the family members of Jagdeep Deepa demanded to register a case of murder but the police did not pay heed to their demand. Later, when the family members knocked the doors of senior police officials, a case of murder was registered on 1st June, 2012 against 4 people on the basis of the statement of Balbir Kaur mother of Jagdeep Deepa.
Later, the family members alleged the police officials for favouring the accused and submitted a petition in the Punjab & Haryana High Court. High Court ordered the DGP Punjab to take necessary action on the application of Balbir Kaur. Punjab Police formed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) on 5th May, 2014 which have failed to submit its report till date and the High Court have asked the SIT to submit its report at the earliest.
