A case was registered against a husband-wife duo for allegedly causing the death of a man.
Based on a complaint by Sham Lal, resident of Jujhar Singh Nagar here, the police booked Balvir Singh and his wife Jasvir Kaur, residents of Kotguru, for causing the death of Sumit Sharma.
Lal alleged that his son Sumit Sharma used to run a private school in partnership with Balvir Singh at Chak Atar Singh Wala. He alleged that Balvir was trying to take over the school, because of which his son was under stress.
Following a complaint by Sumit, a DSP-rank officer called both parties for a negotiation on December 24. Lal alleged that Balvir slapped his son, and he later died due to stress.
Investigating officer ASI Ranjodh Singh said the police were investigating the matter, and a case under section 306 (abetment to suicide) of IPC was registered against both the husband and wife.
