Senior journalist KJ Singh, 63, who along with his mother, Gurcharan Kaur, 92, was found murdered at his house in Mohali’s Phase 3B2 on Saturday afternoon was stabbed 14-15 times, say doctors at civil hospital Mohali after the post-mortem.

Doctors said he was attacked with sharp edged weapons, due to which his internal visceral organs were severely damaged.

Meanwhile, the senior journalist and his mother were cremated at 1pm on Sunday.

Singh, a bachelor, was a former news editor of the Indian Express, The Times of India and The Tribune in Chandigarh.

The double murder first came to light at 1pm on Saturday when KJ Singh’s sister Yashpal Kaur reached his house along with her son Ajay Pal. They were there to give them lunch, said Alam Vijay Singh, deputy superintendent of police (city), Mohali.

The two found blood on the main door that was bolted from outside and the blood trail led to the rooms where the bodies were found.
