“The girl was going to take an examination for the JBT course,but she never reached the examination centre. She was spotted by two village women walking alone on the banks of a river in a distressed condition at about 2-2.30 pm. Her body was found 500 metres from that spot next morning. The post-mortem and forensic examination of the body has revealed that her nails had turned blue,which indicates that poisoning could be the cause of death. The viscera has been sent for chemical examination,” said Balwan Singh,SP,Jind.

The girl’s family refused to claim her body till the police arrested the people involved in her death. The relatives and villagers were up in arms against district administration and the police. They demanded suspension of police officials. The also wanted the 300 people who were booked for damaging government property and attacking cops be acquitted,as well as compensation for the victim’s family.

A team of SC/ST Commission headed by Rajkumar Chanena reached Jind hospital and spoke to the victim’s relatives.
