Mohali, March 4: The four-day-old brutal murder of Paramjit Singh in Teor village has turned to be the handiwork of his estranged wife.
Claiming to have cracked the case, Mohali SSP GPS Bhullar today said that the victim’s estranged wife, Jagroop Kaur, connived with her brother, Pritpal Singh, alias Happy, and his friends to eliminate Paramjit.
Jagroop Kaur was the wife of Hardeep Singh, the elder brother of Paramjit. But after Hardeep died in a road accident in 1994, her family members married her to Paramjit, but the relationship could not sustain for long and they started living separately.
The woman was apparently not happy on Paramjit getting married with another woman and connived with her brother to eliminate Paramjit. On the day of the incident, the accused, Jagroop Kaur, along with her brother and his friends, gathered at Kharar where they had hidden some sharp-edged weapons in the bags.
One of the accused, Jatinder Singh, alias Kaka, purchased a chilly powder packet. On getting confirmation from Jagroop Kaur that Paramjit had left for the fields, Jatinder Singh, threw chilly power in the eyes of the victim and killed him with sharp-edged weapons and fled from the scene.
A case under Sections 302, 120-B and 34 of the IPC was registered at the Kharar police station. During investigation it came to light that accused Jagroop Kaur brother, Pritpal Singh (28) plies a taxi and also running a gym with the help of his friends. The other accused in the case are Dalbir Singh (22) and Goldy. While Jagroop Kaur and Dalbir Singh have been arrested, raids were being conducted to arrest the remaining accused.
