To ensure that the girl,who was assaulted by Punjab Police personnel in Tarn Taran on March 3,and her family is not pressurised to enter into a compromise,the Punjab and Haryana High Court Tuesday asked the Central Reserve Police Force to provide security to the girl and her family.
Insulating the girl from Tarn Taran Senior Superintendent of Police K S Dhillon,Justice Ranjit Singh made it clear that no Tarn Taran police officer should interfere with the case or approach the girl or her family. The court ensured that the girl is not given protection by the Punjab Police.
The girl,on Monday,had approached the court demanding police protection and CBI probe into the assault incident. Justice Singh had set a 24-hour deadline for the Punjab Police to transfer seven errant police personnel,who were allegedly involved in the incident. The court was informed Tuesday that the personnel have been transferred.
With regard to evidence to be produced before the Apex Court,which had earlier this month taken suo motu notice of the incident,the court observed that it would be prudent to let the Apex Court have an unpolluted version of the victim and her family.
The case will now come up for resumed hearing on April 2.
