Even the postmortem report of his daughter couldn’t be surfaced after the passing of a month. Later he filed an application under section 22-A before the court, in which additional District and Session Judge was pleased to order the registration of an FIR against three accused persons. But again, he was kept waiting for 24 hours at PS, finally, a week before her murder case was registered against three accused namely Jai Parkash son of Bhojjomal Harchandani, Mangha Ram son of Giyan Chand Malhi, and Kamlesh son of Arjun Das Malhi.
Later two accused were produced before police, identified as Mangha Ram son of Giyan Chand Malhi, and Kamlesh son of Arjun Das Malhi. While the main accused Parkash was not arrested. He told this scribe that a year before his deceased daughter was engaged with Jai Parkash, but as they came to know about his character they broke the engagement three months back.
Later all three accused used to harras and blackmail his daughter with threats of death. On 21st May they all were out of home, the accused found Janta alone and killed her. Later they hanged her to color the death as a suicide. Added that Jai Parkash was arrested on the day of the murder, but police released him on a phone call of a political person.

They demanded immediate arrest of the main accused and justice.
