Tribune News Service

Bathinda, January 12

Youth Akali Dal leader Balkar Singh Brar today appeared in a local court after getting interim bail from the Punjab and Haryana High Court in connection with the alleged suicide of his nephew’s wife and her two daughters.

The next hearing in the case has been scheduled for January 16. Balkar Singh did not appear before the court in the last hearing.

Nehiawala SHO Angrej Singh confirmed the development and said Balkar appeared in the court today.

Balkar, along with his nephew Gurlal Singh Brar, was among the seven family members booked following the alleged suicide by Gurlal’s wife Amanpreet Kaur (32), along with her two daughters Guneet Kaur (4) and Mehreen Kaur (1), on November 14, 2014.

Their bodies were found in the waterworks tank in Goniana. The accused have been booked under Section 304-B of the IPC for “forcing the woman to commit suicide along with her minor daughters”.

Earlier, the Bathinda police failed to produce Balkar in a local court on December 22. After that the court had asked the police to produce him before it on January 12.

The court had first summoned all seven accused on November 19, asking them to appear before it on December 5, but Balkar did not turn up.
