Ambala (Haryana), July 5 (Calcutta Tube) The Haryana Police engaged divers to search a canal here for the body of Punjab Agriculture Minister Suchha Singh Langah’s personal secretary, who went missing Saturday and is suspected to have committed suicide.

According to police, Harbans Singh, a resident of Pathan Majra village in this Haryana district, had gone out of his house to meet someone Saturday but did not return.
