Inderpreet Singh, son of expelled Chief Khalsa Diwan (CKD) president Charanjit Singh Chadha, booked in a sexual harassment case, allegedly shot himself in the head at Amritsar. Amrik Singh Powar, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), said a five-page suicide note had been found in the deceased’s bag. Sources claimed it carried the names of several police officials.
Inderpreet, a former vice-president of the CKD Charitable Society, asked his driver to take him to a clinic. On reaching there, he found the doctor not available. He returned to his car. Minutes later, he shot himself in the head. He was taken to a nearby hospital by his driver where doctors declared him “brought dead.”
The deceased’s father was booked by the local police on charges of outraging the modesty of a principal of a school run by the CKD Charitable Society after a ‘sleaze’ video went viral on the social media. Inderpreet was charged with criminal intimidation after the principal complained she had been threatened by him over the phone.
Granted interim bail by a local court, Inderpreet was asked to join police investigations. He had appeared before a police team on Tuesday which questioned him about the whereabouts of his father wanted in the sexual harassment case.
