Before he jumped into the river, Jashanbir respectfully took off his own turban and placed it on the bridge.” Jatinder Pal Singh also alleged that operations to rescue the duo were missing as far as the police was concerned and family and friends had employed teams of divers on their own to look for and rescue the duo.
