Kapurthala, June 15, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)
Punjab Istri Akali Dal president and former SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur today lashed out at Punjab government and police over brutal attack on a poor woman Meena Rani at Budha Gujjar Road in Muktsar saying that there is complete failure of law and order in the state and the criminal are not scared of police.
In a statement issued here today, Jagir Kaur expressed her shock and anguish at the way the hapless woman was forcibly dragged out of her house and thrashed in broad day light and its video went viral immediate after the occurrence of the ghastly incident. Since the video was in public domain, the police did arrest six of the ten accused while four still are at large.
Since as per the information available, the accused are politically well connected, Jagir Kaur said that the police must act fast and do not succumb to the political pressure and the victim is assured of complete justice at the earliest.
The Akali leader said that there is no deterrence to the criminal who freely indulge in crime and get away with it as the present Congress dispensation has lost the will to govern. If there were a little fear of police in the people, no criminal would dare to touch a woman especially in full view of public.
