Meanwhile, Punjab's Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said it was "absurd to think" that such a brutality will go unpunished due to ownership of the vehicle.

Referring to the ownership of the company, Badal said that the fact only adds to his responsibility.

"It is absurd even to think that the company's ownership will allow such brutality and brazenness to go unpunished me," he said.
Badal, who is also the Home Minister, said, "I am deeply anguished over the incident, the more so because of the bus in which it happened."

The family members along with representatives of various political parties, including opposition Congress and AAP, farmers organisations and social bodies are sitting on a dharna in front of the local Civil Hospital where the mother of the girl, who was also thrown off the bus, is recuperating.

AAP MP from Patiala Dharambir Gandhi has also joined the protest at the Civil Hospital here.
Sukhdev Singh, father of the victim, said they would not cremate the girl till their demands are accepted including Rs 50 lakh compensation, employment to one member of the family, free treatment to the injured and cancellation of route permits of buses of Orbit Aviation in whose bus the incident took place two days back.
