Five days after the police arrested the in-laws of 32-year-old computer teacher Monika Goyal,whose body was found hanging at her house,a local court on Friday extended their police remand for one more day.
Since the inquiry was not able to ascertain whether it was a suicide or a murder (suggested by the forensic experts),the court extended the custody of the four.
The police officials are hand-tied as statement of Krish,Monikas seven-year-old son,has still not been recorded. Monikas family is not bringing Krish in front of the police. We are having a difficult time convincing the family as the childs statements are important, said a police officer.
Monikas family members said that the police had not yet found anything substantial in the case. The inquiry made by the police to date is not up to the mark according to us. They did not produce the details of the inquiry made by the police in the court today. Then at the judges insistence,they got the copy, said Ashok Goel,one of Monikas relatives.
The family members had also protested at the Sector 19 police station on Thursday,saying that the police should take the case seriously. The officials assured them that Station House Officer Harjit Kaur would personally handle the case now.
