Two days after the killings of Gurdeep Singh, alias Ponty Chadha, and Hardeep Singh Chadha, police claimed that at the heart of the dispute between the two brothers lay not one but two properties. Chadha’s relatives, however, denied all such theories. 


Delhi Police on Monday claimed that on Saturday morning Ponty’s men had tried to take over another farmhouse in Bijwasan in south-west Delhi owned by younger brother Hardeep. While they were unsuccessful at Bijwasan, Ponty and his men managed to enter the Chhatarpur farmhouse.

“Hardeep rushed to the Chhatarpur farmhouse where he found Ponty and killed him in anger. We are scanning the call details of Ponty, Hardeep and their men to establish the exact sequence of events,” a senior police officer said.

Hardeep Chadha’s father-in-law Harvinder Singh Sarna, however, said, “We do not know what exactly happened and how. But there was no property dispute between the two. Whatever differences were there had already been settled.”
“The two families have always been together. They don’t even want to pursue the case against each other,” he added.

Sarna's elder brother Paramjit Singh Sarna, who is also the president of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee, said, "The two brothers had separate businesses, but they were like one single family. If there was any dispute between them we would have certainly known."

Vivek Gogia, Joint Commissioner of Police (south-West), said the property dispute had not reached the court and the brothers' mother and community elders had been trying to find a solution to the disagreements between the two.
