The police have solved the case of murder of Jagtar Singh Tari (39), a tempo driver of Sekhe village, who had gone missing on the night of August 25 and 26.
Inspector Sanjiv Goyal said here on Wednesday that three people have been booked in the case, while two of them, Ravinder Ravi (35) of Mandiyan village, and Paramjit Kaur (34), wife of Tari, have been arrested. The third, Jugraj alias Jograj (38), is still absconding. The case was registered on Tuesday under sections 302, 201 and 120B of IPC, he added. The case relates to Amargarh subdivision.
The police said the case came to light when Gurbaksh Singh (64), brother of Tari, lodged a complaint that his brother, who had received a call from Jugraj on August 25 had not returned home. Tari had gone to meet him on his scooter (PB 28 B 4701).
When Tari did not return home past midnight, his father-in-law Raja Ram called on his mobile, which was answered by Jugraj, who informed him that they were having a party and would get late.
Gurbaksh Singh said that the next morning (August 26) Tari's body was found from the grain market's tubewell in Narike Kalan village. The body bore injuries on his head and feet. His mobile phone and scooter were missing.
Tari's wife, Paramjit Kaur, refused a postmortem and cremate the body in a hurry. During investigation, Paramjit Kaur confessed that she was having an illicit relationship with Ravi and she had conspired with the other two to kill her husband.
