BATHINDA: An old father's 11-year-long struggle to get justice for his dead son finally bore fruit when a fast-track court found five policemen guilty of abetment to suicide and illegal confinement on Wednesday.

The guilty cops include an inspector, a sub-inspector and an ASI, who were awarded six-years' RI for their ruthless attitude that forced Pal Singh to commit suicide in 1997. Gurcharan Singh (60) had been fighting a relentless battle against the cops who reportedly forced his son Pal Singh to commit suicide.
