Tribune News Service

Panipat, August 2

The special team of the Karnal police had to go back to Karnal on Sunday from Panipat after the villagers at Binjhol village here refused to give any statements to the police.

They demanded the release of their 14 prominent persons, who have been lodged in jail by the police, and also the cancellation of the case registered on July 30.

As per sources, the special team headed by DSP Jagdeep Duhan visited Panipat in connection with the investigation of the murder case of three children on the consecutive second day on Sunday.

The team members called up the family members and other villagers to record their statements and to visit the spot along with them and the three children who were along with the deceased on July 7 evening. But the villagers refused the police team's request, said sources.

The villagers refused to give any statements to the police saying that their all prominent leaders were lodged in jail by the Panipat police on July 31.

The villagers demanded that till their prominent leaders are not released, they won't be able to give any statements. The villagers began a dharna in their village 'chaupal' over their demands.

Later in the evening, a delegation of villagers came to Karnal and had a meeting with the police.

Surinder Singh Bhoria, SP, Karnal, said that the investigation in both cases is under progress. We are regularly in touch with the family members of the three children. A delegation came to Karnal in the evening and met us. We have pacified them. We also asked them to provide the evidence they have. They have given us some videos and photos, he added.
