Though the Punjab Congress staged a massive dharna outside Mullanpur police station on April 27 against alleged false FIRs registered,Jagraon police claimed the cases were registered purely on merit.
In yet another case,a 12-year-old rape victims father had come in the same dharna to meet Bajwa and to tell the masses that police were not arresting all the accused booked in the rape case. However,the police said even in this case,the main accused had been arrested and the remaining names were baseless.
In the first case,Channi Arora,Gurpreet and Gagandeep Singh all Congress workers had been booked under the SC Act and were put behind bars. Channis wife Neelam had met Bajwa and stated that her husband was booked in a false case and Dakha incharge Jassi Khangura said the police authorities did not even listen to his phone calls,or to phone calls of Union Minister Manish Tewari and many other senior leaders.
Jagraon SSP Ashish Chaudhary,however,stated that the case was handled purely on merit and Channi Arora had beaten up an SC woman along with others to throw her out of the shop which he had rented to the woman. Earlier,the womans husband was paying rent to Arora and last month,he died of liver dysfunction and after that,the woman started running the shop to earn her living,but Arora threw her out forcibly. A tenant cannot be thrown out of the shop like this, said the SSP.
Regarding the rape case,he said,It is an year-old case and already the main culprits had been arrested. The new names being taken by the family are false as per our inquiry.
