Though the news report in Punjabi Tribune also makes mention of some details regarding the Burj Jawahar Singh Wala and Bargari beadbi cases and quotes undisclosed sources saying that the arrested persons have also confessed to these crimes, but there is no official disclosure in this regard so far.

Whereas media reports are repeatedly maintaining that the beadbi cases were close to be solved, the Punjab police and governments remains tight lipped on this matter.

Moreover, the Punjab police have already taken the plea of CBI investigation in Beadbi cases to “justify” their silence.

DIG Ranbir Singh Khatra, who also heads the SIT investigating into Gurusar Jalal and Malke beadbi cases, had did not utter any word on investigation of beadbi cases during his address to media persons few days back (watch video).

Punjab police chief Suresh Arora too issued a written statement informing that the CBI team has arrive in Moga to investigate Beadbi cases. He informed that the Punjab police was extending full access to the CBI to arrested persons but the statement the issue of alleged involvement of dera men in Beadbi cases was ignored in the statement (read more).

The Punjab government and CM Capt. Amarinder Singh has also maintained silence on this matter so far.
