Jagjit Singh v. State of Punjab. - CRM-40283-M-2006  RD-P&H 4390 (19 July 2006)
Jagjit Singh vs State of Punjab & others Present : Mr.Jatinder Singh, Advocate,
for Mr.S.S.Majithia, Advocate,
for the petitioner.
Mr.B.S.Baath, AAG, Punjab,
for respondents No.1 to 3.
Prayer in the present petition, filed under Section 482 of the Cr.P.C, is for the issuance of appropriate directions to respondent No.3 to take action against respondents No.4 to 7, in accordance with law, on the basis of the complaint, dated 17.6.2006 (Annexure P-2), filed by the petitioner.
Reply, by way of an affidavit, of Jagdeep Singh Hundal, PPS, DSP, Sub Division Ajnala, on behalf of respondents No.1 to 3, filed today in Court, is taken on record.
A perusal of the reply reveals that Rajwinder Kaur, daughter of the petitioner, was found from the complex of Gurdwara Ramdass, Amritsar on 28.6.2006 and was brought to the police station, Ramdass. Her parents and relatives were informed. The police recorded her statement, wherein she disclosed that on 16.6.2006, she went to Harmandir Sahib, where she met an old lady. She refused to go with her parents, as her father gave her severe beatings and was compelling her to marry against her wish.
Thereafter, her custody was handed over to her maternal uncle in the presence of her parents.
However, a perusal of the statement of Rajwinder Kaur does disclose a reference to a boy, who was supposed to accompany her. In my considered opinion, it would be appropriate to direct the Superintendent of Crl.Misc.No.40283.M of 2006 : 2 :
Police, Police District Majitha to look into the complaint (Annexure P-2), and in case, it discloses the commission of a cognizable offence, proceed, in accordance with law.
The present petition stands disposed of accordingly.
