The family of the girl, who has accused her NRI husband and his kin of demanding dowry, have now complained that an assistant sub-inspector with the Haryana police — the boy's relative — was attempting to influence investigations and foil the probe into the incident.
The girl has alleged that ASI Hemant Kumar, and a former DGP are trying to influence the probe. While the former DGP is the brother-in-law of the boy's father, ASI Hemant Kumar is also a close relative of the family.
A senior police official, however, on Thursday said that the girl has not joined investigations in the case. "No arrests have been made in the case so far as we are still investigating," the official added.
In her complaint, the girl alleged that her husband, Kanwar Samir, has connections in the police due to which there is no headway in the case. She has alleged that police are proceeding slowly in the matter and it was only after she approached a district court that directions were issued to the police to register the case. Following the court directions, a case was registered at the Sector-5 police station in Panchkula.
Senior police officials said that the boy's father and mother have been called for questioning and added that the matter was being investigated.
The girl has also listed out items that were allegedly part of her dowry. She has alleged that despite taking jewellery and cash from her family, she was being continuously harassed. The girl has claimed that she was subjected to torture and her passport was stolen while her husband, with whom she lived for a while in the UK, has withdrawn her sponsorship. She has also alleged that the her husband's sister and brother-in-law were involved in the drug trade.
