More than a thousand people assembled in Gurgaon on Sunday demanding speedy probe into the death of Geetanjali Garg,wife of the Chief Judicial Magistrate. The protesters urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi to intervene in the matter.
The protestors,carrying ‘Justice for Geetanjali’ placards,gathered outside the CJM’s residence in Civil Lines,raising slogans against the Haryana Police and seeking the suspension of CJM Ravneet Garg. Geetanjali was found dead with bullet injuries in a park in the high-security Police Lines area of Gurgaon last month. Although police initially said it appeared to be a case of suicide,her family alleged that she was murdered.
Led by Geetanjali’s father Omprakash Agrawal,the protesters marched for more than four hours. They went to the Civil Lines administrative wing,to the local BJP headquarters,from there to District Sessions Judge Shekhar Dhawan’s residence and the Police Commissioner’s office. The march culminated with a candlelight vigil at Rajiv Chowk.
The Gurgaon Police are responsible for the slow pace of investigation… We have been demanding a fair probe. More than 14 days after she died,the police are yet to find a single piece of evidence, Agrawal alleged.
