The case was brought to light when the police received a complaint from a girl accusing a youth of sexual exploitation. After detailed inquiry, the police found that the youth involved were Vajinder Singh and Maninder Singh, sons of dismissed DSP Gurjit Singh, who were involved in a sex racket and running a business of making obscene MMS clips.
The modus operandi was that the duo along with other members of the family ran a beauty parlour in Bathinda and with the help of its manager, Sarbjeet Kaur - who initiated physical relationship with the clients and later drugged them after taking them home. The MMS was made there and was used to blackmail them. Passiana SHO Amanpal Singh said, “After befriending girls, Vajinder and Maninder used to take them to their house at Patiala and serve them drug-laced drinks. After they fell unconscious the accused used to prepare their MMSes and blackmail them."
The police recovered many MMS' in the duo's possession. A case has been registered and the victims are believed to be in the age group of 40 and hail from in and around Bathinda, including places like Ferozepur, Sangrur, Mansa and Patiala. "We have registered a case against the dismissed DSP, Gurjit Singh – PO in a murder case; his two sons Vajinder, Maninder and wife Jaspal Kaur. Gurjit was dismissed some years back after the registration of murder case," SHO Amanpal commented on being asked about the details of the case.
