Amritsar, June 9

Upset over alleged police inaction in arresting the suspect behind the suicide of Kavita Singh, principal of a nursing college, her family members held an agitation at Rambagh road here on Sunday. They demanded immediate arrest of the suspects. Kavita Singh committed suicide by hanging herself at her house in Mohan Nagar on Sultanwind road here on April 20. The police have booked a woman, identified as Loveena, for abetment of suicide on the complaint filed by her son Mohit.

According to her family members. Kavita Singh used to perform sewa at a church. Arguments owing to some issue arose between her and the suspect. Though she did not hold anyone responsible for her extreme step in her suicide note, Mohit named Loveena as the accused and a case under Section 306 of the IPC was registered.

Mohit, along with his family members and supporters, raised slogans against the police. They lifted their ‘dharna’ after receiving an assurance from the police who reached the spot.

ADCP JS Walia said though the victim did not held anyone responsible for her suicide, the police had booked Loveena on the complaint of Mohit. He said Mohit and his family members, instead of meeting police officials, held a protest which is “wrong way”. He said an investigation was under way and appropriate action would be taken after completion of the probe.
