Rohtak, June 12 (UNI) Dismissed Head Constable Balraj and Constable Sheelak Ram were today produced in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Bhupinder Nath, who remanded them to police custody till June 14 in the Sarita rape case.
The family members and other supporters of the dismissed policemen who are accused in the Sarita rape case created a scene in the court complex when they were being produced in the court.
As soon as the accused were brought to the court complex in a police van at around noon, the relatives of the two accused started shouting slogans against DSP Manveer Singh alleging that he did not conduct the departmental inquiry fairly.
The slogan shouting relatives followed the accused to the CJM courtroom on the first floor of the judicial complex. The court staff had to shut the doors of the courtroom to prevent the mob entry.
As the proceedings of the court were in progress, the relatives continued shouting slogans outside the courtroom.
After the CJM pronounced his orders remanding both the accused to police custody, the police took away the two from a side door of the court so as to prevent the situation from taking an ugly turn in view of the presence of the supporters of the accused at the main gate of the courtroom.
After the accused were whisked away by the state crime branch of the police, their family members and supporters held a demonstration outside the main gate of the judicial complex claiming that both Balran and Sheelak Ram were innocent.
They also went to the mini secretariat and submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner alleging that DSP Manveer Singh instigated Sarita to demand Rs six lakh from the two policemen.
Seeking justice, they demanded stern action against the DSP.
They burnt the effigy of the DSP outside the local police lines and also threatened to block NH-71 at Lakhan Majra chowk if justice was denied to them.
Deputy Commissioner P C Meena assured the protestors that he would forward their memorandum to the government.
