A dowry case was registered against chief judicial magistrate Ravneet Garg on Saturday in his wife Gitanjali's murder case. Gitanjali's father on Friday alleged that the Garg family had been harassing her with their never-ending demands. 

Gitanjali's father, Om Prakash Aggarwal, told agencies that his son and other family members were in Gurgaon to lodge a complaint against six members of the Garg family, including chief judicial magistrate Ravneet Garg and his father K K Garg, a retired sessions judge of Chandigarh. 

Gitanjali, 30, was found dead inside Police Lines with two bullet injuries on Thursday. Police recovered the weapon from near the body. While the CJM has claimed to the police that his wife had committed suicide, Gitanjali's relative alleged that the CJM was telling a lie. 

Deputy Commissioner of Police, West, Surender Pal said that a team of experts has visited the scene and the matter is being investigated keeping all options open. 

The post mortem report, which was conducted today, has mentioned that one bullet hit her stomach while another bullet hit his chin and pierced though her head. 

A third bullet was also fired which injured her neck minutely, said the DCP. 

However, relatives of Gitanjali, gathered outside the post mortem office, told to the media that CJM Ravneet Garg was telling a lie that she had committed the suicide. 

"How can a lady fire three rounds at herself," asked Amit Jindal and Rajiv Jindal, relatives of the deceased. 

The revolver, recovered from the spot, has been seized by the police and its forensic report is being prepared to ascertain who used it. 

"The report would also confirm whether bullets of the same revolver had resulted the death of Gitanjali or another revolver was used to commit the crime," the DCP said. 

The SIT consists of five senior police officers-- two ACP rank officer (one lady ACP), two inspectors and one assistant sub inspector (ASI), the officer said.
