“The chief minister has assured us of free and fair investigation. He told us that the SSP SAS Nagar Kuldeep Singh Chahal is monitoring the investigation and culprits will not be spared,” Jaspal, later told a press conference.

He added that after the CM’s assurance, the family had decided to cremate Ekam at the Sector 25 cremation ground, Chandigarh, at noon, on Tuesday.

Chief minister captain Amarinder Singh ordered formation of a special investigation team (SIT) under SAS Nagar senior superintendent of police Kuldeep Singh Chahal to probe Ekam’s murder, Darshan claimed.

He also claimed that the CM had issued orders for including the name of Nimardeep Singh, a close friend of Ekam’s wife Seerat, in the FIR.

When contacted, former Congress MLA from Sardulgarh Ajit Inder Singh Mofar, said, “It is an unfortunate incident and my name is unnecessarily being dragged into the case. Seerat is my sister’s daughter. The couple’s relationship was under strain since 2007. I have also met the CM.”
