According to local police sources, police visited the house of the Gendle family on the complaint of the girl and took Harish's father to the Belha police station.

On the spur of the moment, Gendle rushed to the railway station and jumped before a train, an incident which triggered protests outside the police station on Tuesday demanding the registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against the constable.
"In the backdrop of protests and preliminary investigation, Bilaspur SSP suspended the constable for negligence," the officer said.
He refused to speak on a link between the alleged thrashing of the father of Gendle and the latter's suicide.
