Young people die in Turkey: Family protests in Kurukshetra

Hundreds of residents of Barna village in Kurukshetra district staged a protest on Thursday demanding action against three officers accusing him of murdering a youth in Turkey

Hundreds of residents of Barna village in Kurukshetra district staged a protest on Thursday demanding action against three officers accusing him of murdering a youth in Turkey.

Protesters alleged that the defendant promised to send the late Vicky Singh (22) to Germany and took 14 million. But he had been stuck in Turkey for seven months and now the agent was asking for more money to send him to Germany from Turkey.

They alleged that since they were unable to provide more money, he was killed in Turkey. The protesters carried his body and demanded that an autopsy be carried out by a medical board to determine the cause of death and that action be taken against those involved in the murder.

After a major drama lasting nearly two hours, Kurukshetra Police Extra Superintendent Karan Goel and SDM Narender Malik managed to appease the protesters.

Following assurances of an investigation by a special investigation team and action in accordance with the findings of the investigation, they ended the protest. The ASP said the police would make efforts to recover the money it had paid to the officers.
