With the arrest of two persons, the police claimed to have solved the blind murder of NRI Rajpal Singh at Thinda village. His second wife has emerged the main culprit in the police investigation.

Those accused have been identified as Amrik and Satinder. Rajpal (67) had died under mysterious circumstances on the night of December 25 last year at his native village. He was cremated by his wife Kuljinder Kaur without informing his family in Canada and the UK. After performing the funeral rites and attending the marriage of her brother, Kuljinder returned to the UK on December 30. But the way she got all the moveable and immoveable property transferred to her name days before Rajpal’s death and opened a joint bank account with a Punjab police constable Satinder Singh who turned out to be her lover, it raised suspicion in the minds of deceased’s family.

The latter approached the police for a probe at which senior superintendent of police Rajjit Singh Hundal constituted a special investigation team (SIT) comprising SP Baljit Singh Dhillon, DSP Chabbewal Hardip Kumar, Mehtiana SHO Harneel Singh and CIA in charge Onkar Singh Brar. The SIT found out that Kuljinder wanted to get rid of her husband who was more than double her age.
