Police investigations into the death of two brothers, who were killed by a speeding canter on November 26, revealed that it was a planned murder.

Dharam Singh and Satpal Singh of Chor Karsa village were hit by canter near Jaisingh Pura, Assandh. The duo died on the spot.

The police had initially taken it as a road accident, however, during investigation the matter emerged as a murder case, said the superintendent of police Shashank Anand.

The main accused Vijay Singh, who was driving the canter, has been arrested.

Police said that in 2008, the victims had a fight in the village, over a trivial issue, and their rival villager,Jai Singh, died few days after the violent clash.

Jai Singh's family had blamed Dharam, Satpal, Maha Singh and their father Kehar Singh for murdering his Son.

Later, the murder charge could not be proved and Jai's family developed an ill-feeling towards the accused family.

Anand.said that during interrogation Vijay had admitted to the police that he hatched a conspiracy to kill the brothers to avenge his maternal uncle Jai Singh's death.

Vijay said that he was following the duo on November 26 and hit their motorcycle with a canter to shape it a case of road accident.
