“Two policemen came to our house on a motorcycle around 6 pm yesterday. I was alone and they asked the whereabouts of my father. I told them I had no idea where my father had gone. They called up the SHO and later asked me to accompany them to the police station. When I refused, they thrashed and dragged me by my hair,” the victim alleged.
She said she cried in pain but the policemen did not relent. They dragged her till she became unconscious due to pain and fear.
The victim has got her medico legal report and will approach the authorities against the police highhandedness.
Dalip Singh, SHO, Rania police station, however, said the allegations were false and it was attempt to save her father, Gurmej Singh.
