What Happened To Dilroz Kaur? Victim Of Neighbor Jealousy

Dilroz Kaur was a two-year-old girl from Ludhiana, Punjab, India, who was brutally murdered in 2021.

Her case is in the limelight as the court found Neelam guilty of kidnapping or abducting to murder. Let’s explore what happened to Dilroz Kaur.

Key Takeaways

  • Dilroz Kaur was only two years and nine months old at the time of her demise. She passed away due to asphyxiation.
  • Neelam kidnapped Dilroz Kaur and buried her alive in a pit on November 28, 2021. 
  • Neelam committed this heinous act due to jealousy. She divorced in 2015 and lives in her parents’ house with two children.

This heartbreaking case highlights the importance of addressing personal conflicts and preventing such tragedies from occurring in our communities.

Even though Dilroz’s father worked as a head constable at Punjab Police, such a heinous act happened in his family.

What Happened To Dilroz Kaur?

Dilroz Kaur, the daughter of Harpreet Singh and Kiran Kaur, was kidnapped and buried alive in a pit by a neighbor on November 28, 2021.

The accused woman took her on her scooter while Dilroz was playing outside her house. She buried the toddler alive in a vacant plot in Salem Tabri.

The police rescued Dilroz and rushed her to the DMC hospital, but tragically, the doctors declared her brought dead. She passed away due to asphyxiation.

Dilroz was only two and nine months old. Her father said, 

“My daughter is no more physically present, but I haven’t let her leave my heart and soul. She can never die for me.”

The Act Of Heinous Crime Due To Jealousy

Neelam, 35, of the Shimlapuri neighborhood, was found guilty by the court on April 12 of killing Dilroz Kaur. She was arrested by the police from the same locality.

She faced charges under Section 364 (kidnapping or abducting to murder) of the Indian Penal Code. The accused violated the trust of their neighbors and their confidence in humanity.

They pose a threat to society and cannot be soothed. A lighter sentence would significantly harm the victim and society.

The prosecution examined 26 witnesses to prove the case. The court announced the extent of the punishment and said,

“Neelam is a threat to society and she will always be one. She cannot be changed.”

Neelam had no significant issues with Dilroz’s family. However, she harbored resentment and jealousy.

Dilroz’s father used to buy expensive gifts and toys for her daughter, and when Neelam’s children saw them, they also used to demand the same, but she could not afford such luxuries.

Her divorce in 2015 and subsequent living arrangements with her parents and two sons seemed to contribute to her feelings of being targeted.

Her distorted perception led her to commit this heinous act as revenge against Dilroz’s family.

Ludhiana Court awards the death penalty to Neelam for murdering two-year-old Dilroz Kaur.


When did the trial and sentencing take place?

Dilroz Kaur’s case trial and sentencing took place on April 12, 2024.

Why has the case been considered rarest of rare?

The case has been called the rarest of rare because it wasn’t done on the spur of the moment. How the crime was committed, i.e., by stuffing sand into the mouth of the child and then burying her alive upside down in a pit, has shocked everyone.
