The Punjab Police on Monday apprised the Punjab and Haryana High Court that the charge sheet against the accused of Faridkot minor girl abduction case was prepared and would soon be filed in a trial court.
Opposing the demand of a probe by the CBI made by the minor's parents, the Faridkot Police submitted that appropriate steps had been taken to ensure security of the minor and her parents.
The police stated that the investigation of the case was complete. The reply was filed in response to a petition filed by the parents of the minor girl, who was allegedly abducted.
The reply read that the Faridkot Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) had issued specific directions to ensure the security of the girl's parents and the patrolling in their area had been beefed up by the district police.
An affidavit was filed by Faridkot DSP Jaswinder Pal. Taking the affidavit on record, the High Court adjourned the case for December 17.
In the petition, the parents of the girl had alleged that the Faridkot police was hand-in-gloves with the main accused, Nishan Singh, and had not taken any action.
Seeking an independent probe by the CBI or a Special Investigation Team, the parents had contended that the Punjab Police would not undertake a fair and impartial investigation.
In their petition, the parents added, "Our daughter was under immense pressure. When she spoke to us for two minutes at the court, she told us that if she was taken home, Nishan Singh and his companions would hurt us".
