The protesters including some females alleged that the deceased was murdered by her in-laws for not fulfilling their dowry demand.
“It has been more than a week since her body was found. However, the police has not been able to make any arrest so far, no investigation was carried into the matter. We went to police station many a times seeking copy of forensic report and FIR which was denied to us,” said uncle of the deceased.
Prabjhot Kaur, mother of one child, was married six years back was found hanged at her room in Mehjoor Nagar Thursday last. Later the family claimed that she was killed by her in-laws.
Deceased's uncle asserted that she was subjected to immense mental and physical torture by her in-laws including husband and sister in-laws for not bringing dowry
He further stated that the body of Prabjhot was found in suspicious circumstances at her in-laws home at Mehjoornagar locality and alleged that the police is reluctant to carry out investigations in this direction.
“We are not being provided with the copy of forensic report and FIR; police even did not conduct any investigation which forces us to smell rat. We cannot rely on suicide theory of police until and unless proved,” he added.
The protesters appealed Governor, N.N Vohra, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir, S.P Pani and other higher-ups in Governor Administration to look into the issue and exert a pressure on police to bring facts to fore.
