The counsel for the Khalsa College suicide victim’s family has moved the Cantonment police through a witness while accusing the Khalsa College Management of “tampering with the prosecution evidence”.
Advocate Sandeep Gorsi alleged that the management was threatening the witnesses, who are college students, of dire consequences.
“The prime witness, Jagnandan Singh, a student, has alleged that the staff of the college were harassing him and forcing him to leave the hostel. He alleged that the management had adopted a confrontational attitude against him,” Gorsi added. He hoped that the police would soon arrest the culprits in the case.
While honorary secretary, Khalsa College Management, Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina, could not be contacted despite repeated attempts, Dharminder Singh Rataul, spokesperson of the management, denied the development.
Meanwhile the Cantonment police have procured the arrest warrant of three prime suspects in the case in which an agriculture student of Khalsa College, Harpreet Singh, had committed suicide by hanging himself in the hostel room.The Sessions Court has already rejected the anticipatory bail plea of the accused who were still on the run.
Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (city –II) said investigations were under progress and in the positive direction. He said efforts were on to arrest the suspects. They were on the run since the dismissal of their bail pleas.
The Cantonment police have booked the Khalsa College Principal, Dr Mahal Singh, the Registrar, Dr Davinder Singh, and head of the department on charges of abetment to suicide on a complaint filed by the deceased’s father, Yadwinder Singh, a resident of Bathinda.
Harpreet had committed suicide on April 26 after the management did not allow him to sit in the examination and practicals owing to shortage of mandatory lectures.
The incident led to an agitation by students, who blocked GT Road and continued the protest for several days.
