What is the suicide case?

 

The Dugri Police Station had arrested the deceased Ramandeep Kaur and her husband for being involved in a credit card fraud. Ramandeep had prior cases registered against her in Mohali and other cities. After her arrest on August 3, 2017, Ludhiana police had registered a case under sections 379, 420, 465, 467, 468, 471, 201, 120-B of IPC and IT Act.

 

Ramandeep and her husband were kept in separate cells. During her containment, police officials had allegedly harassed and misbehaved with Ramandeep. Distraught by the harassment, Ramandeep hung herself to death in the bathroom in the presence of constables Rajwinder Kaur and Amandeep Kaur on August 4.

 

Following her suicide, the deceased’s family had filed a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court for a CBI investigation into the matter. They claimed that Ramandeep was taken into illegal custody by the police.

 

Punjab Police had registered an FIR on 13 June 2019. However, the deceased’s family were suspicious of the police’s handling of the case. A Special Investigation Team (SIT) was formed by Punjab Police under the supervision of IPS officer Neerja (then Ropar Range IG) and Opinderjit Singh Ghuman (then Batala SP). The petitioner also raised questions on the SIT report. The petitioner had said that there were many loop holes in the investigation of Punjab Police. The petioner was adamant that when Ramandeep Kaur was taken to the hospital post mortem, the doctor had clearly written in his report that there were knife wounds on Ramandeep's hand. Looking at all the facts, Judge Pankaj Jain ordered CBI to register a case in the matter. This case was registered on Friday.
