Even as the two children, now without a father and mother in police custody, appear normal and even accompanied their grandfather to meet the CM, the reality of what has happened is yet to sink in.
“Papa and mummy had a fight on Saturday night. We went to a gurdwara that night where Papa asked mom to take oath that she was telling the truth,” six-yea-old Humaira has told his grandfather. Neither of the children, however, remember or know what started the quarrel.
“On the way back from the gurdwara, they kept arguing in the vehicle. Even after coming home, papa asked mummy to swear by the holy book,” Humaira says.
‘EKAM WANTED SEERAT TO RETURN PROPERTY’
“Had I known that this was the last time I was seeing him, I would not have let him go,” said the deceased’s father Jaspal. On Saturday, Ekam was at Jaspal’s house in Phase 6 till 10.30pm on Saturday.
“He had told me that he wanted to leave Seerat and come back to me with the children. He also told me that a number of properties were in the name of his mother-in-law. He wanted these returned,” claimed Jaspal.
