Levelling serious allegations of 'unholy nexus' between judiciary, police and politicians, a Punjab based businessman on Monday demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe in an alleged 'dowry harassment case' of his daughter.
Addressing the mediapersons on Monday, Ferozepur based businessman, VP Singh alleged he was not getting justice for his daughter Amandeep Kaur, who had tied knot to Muktsar based resident Tarandeep Singh on 25 November, 2013 during a much expensive 'wedding ceremony'.
He alleged, prior to the marriage, Tarandeep's family demanded dowry including a luxury car, diamond sets for mother and duo sisters and later SUV for the father which were facilitated by him as compelled by the circumstances.
Singh further said, even though Tarandeep's family did marriage with great 'pump and show' by incurring Rs 3.25 Crore. "Besides this, next day of marriage, Tarandeep and his family demanded Fixed Deposit Rates (FDRs) of Rs 1.50 Crore, plot measuring two Kanals at Nayagaon in Chandigarh. However, my daughter and I refused to do so. Following this, Tarandeep and his family, tortured Amandeep and even attempted to kill her," alleged Singh.
Later on Amandeep, filed a police complaint, and after a police probe, Tarandeep and his family members were booked. Singh alleged the accused Tarandeep's family for 'bench hunting' with the help of a senior advocate to get the stay on their arrest by filing a petition. In the petition, accused also submitted the photographs of all the police officers who had come in the wedding.
Singh alleged, Tarandeep also misled MS Gill Commission, which was set up by Punjab and Haryana High Court (HC), by concealing the real facts. Following it, the Commission issued notices to 39 senior police officers who attended the wedding. Singh alleged Tarandeep's family of giving bribes to police through Aman Sakoda, who was recently nabbed by police in connection with various corruption cases. He also alleged the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) government to provide help to the accused.
"Tarandeep and his family bribed crore of rupees through Aman Sakoda to the police officers while police officers, judicial system and politicians committed corruption at large scale in this case, " he alleged. He further said, "I am not fighting only for my daughter, but for every daughter of this nation, who is being harassed by police and law and order system. We will set up a body which will provide free of cost help to dowry case women sufferers", he said.
