The Nakodar Sadar police have booked three people on charges of killing a Canada-based NRI. Station house officer (SHO) Davindar Singh said they are Avtar Singh, Tejindar Singh alias Gagan, and Manjidar Singh alias Manga, all residents of Lohar Nangal village.
Surindar Kaur, a Canadian citizen and native of Dhaliwal village and wife of deceased Teja Singh, complained to police that her husband went to his fields near the village on Thursday evening, which were being cultivated by one Suleiman, as they wanted land back from him. She said her relative Avtar Singh was instigating Suleiman not to give possession of the land.
Kaur, in her statement, alleged that the accused also reached there and started abusing Teja Singh, assaulted him and threatened him with dire consequences. She said her husband started feeling uneasy. She said they rushed Teja Singh to a private clinic at Jandiala village where the doctor declared him brought dead. Kaur held the three accused responsible for her husband’s death.
The SHO said a case under sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and 14 (every member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence committed in prosecution of common object) of the IPC has been registered against the accused. No arrests have been made and raids are being conducted to nab the accused. HTC
