Chandigarh, December 31: Breaking his silence, Ashu Girhotra, brother of Ruchika, on Thursday filed a fresh complaint before Haryana Police seeking registration of a case of abetment to suicide against former DGP S P S Rathore and demanded that he should be put behind bars.

“I was tortured. Many false cases were filed against me. My family was harassed. Because of the torture I was subjected to, my sister committed suicide,” he said.

Ashu said he was subjected to third degree torture in police custody Rathore used to personally come and see it.

“My demand is he should be put behind bars,” he said in reply to a question.
