A day after a makeup artist, Navgeet Kaur alias Geet Brar, was found dead, police arrested a cameraman working in the Punjabi film industry for killing her.

The accused, Manjit Singh Thind, is a resident of Rajpura.

Senior superintendent of police S Bhoopati said Geet and Manjit knew each other and had bought a professional camera worth Rs 25 lakh. “Geet contributed Rs 10 lakh and Manjit promised to give her Rs 50,000 per month but failed to do so,” the SSP said.

Manjit asked Geet to accompany him to a bank in Rajpura to withdraw money on Tuesday but took her to a secluded place where he killed her with his licensed .32-bore pistol.

Geet, 25, who belongs to Moga, was staying as a paying guest in Sector 40, Chandigarh. She was shot at point-blank range and suffered bullet injuries in the forehead and stomach. The Rajpura police recovered her body from the focal point area on Wednesday.
