Meanwhile, People's Party of Punjab chief Manpreet Singh Badal also visited
the bereaved family.
Manpreet, estranged nephew of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, dismissed
sacking of the SHO as "a cover up exercise" of the Akali-BJP government.
"People are not satisfied with the dismissal of an SHO. The responsibility lies
with the chief minister and the state's home minister, and action needs to be
initiated against them in case they do not resign," the PPP chief said.
The PPP chief said his party would be submitting a memorandum to the Punjab
Governor seeking a judicial inquiry into the incident.
Manpreet alleged this is not an isolated incident since it came close on the
heels of an abduction case involving a 15-year-old girl from Faridkot.
