New Delhi :
The family of Mandeep Kaur, who committed suicide in New York City, USA, has made serious allegations after giving information through video about the atrocities committed by her husband. The relatives said that the husband cremated her (Mandeep’s) while they were ‘claiming’ her body. Mandeep’s brother Sandeep Singh, while talking to NewsBust from Bijnor in UP, said, “I am not satisfied (with the steps taken by the Government of India). He performed the last rites in a secret manner.” What are you doing? How can an accused be allowed to do this?”
He sought help in prosecuting Mandeep’s husband Ranjodhveer Singh Sandhu, a truck driver in America. The family married both of them in 2015. Mandeep’s two daughters, aged six and four, are with her husband in the US. The husband allegedly used to torture Mandeep for not giving birth to a son. The claim of the family’s secret funeral was made hours after the Indian Ministry of External Affairs said that it was in touch with US officials and the family in this matter. However, nothing was said about the last rites in the tweet.
Mandeep Kaur, 30, died on 4 August. The video of him telling about the atrocities with him had gone viral. In the video she is saying, “I tolerated all this, in the hope that one day everything will be all right.” Gone, now I cannot bear beatings everyday. Speaking in Punjabi, Mandeep accuses her husband and in-laws of “forcing” her to commit suicide. She says, “Dad, I’m about to die, please forgive me.” His family in Uttar Pradesh told NewsBust that on August 4, the news of Mandeep’s death was received. Her father Jaspal Singh filed a case of abetment to suicide in the UP police station against her husband living in the US and her parents living in India.
