Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has directed Director General of Police (DGP) Dinkar Gupta to ensure proper investigation into the alleged rape and murder of a six-year-old girl in Hoshiarpur district.

The Chief Minister has also asked the DGP to present the challan in the case before the court.

“Extremely sad and shocking incident of rape and murder of 6-year-old in Hoshiarpur,” the Chief Minister said in a tweet on Friday.
