A 67-year-old widow Kashmir Kaur on Friday appealed for chief minister Parkash Singh Badal's intervention to ensure the arrest of the alleged murderers of her 23-year-old son Gurpreet Singh.

Speaking to Hindustan Times here, Kashmir Kaur of Hardo Bathwala village near here alleged that one Jaswinder Singh, with whom they had old enmity, had deliberately rammed his tractor into his son's motorcycle with his tractor at Sekha village on April 18. Though the accident took place around 3.30pm, her son remained lying unattended in critical condition at the spot till 6.15pm, she claimed and added that when she took her son to the civil hospital in Gurdaspur, he was declared brought dead.

Kashmir Kaur said that she had shifted to Hardo Bathwala village after her neighbour and Jaswinder's father Bir Singh allegedly forced her to leave her home in Sekha village after the death of her husband Mohinder Singh about eight years ago.

She said that the death of her son was planned murder rather than a fatality in a road accident
She questioned the role of Dorangla police for taking no action against the accused even after registering a case under Section 304-A against Jaswinder.

Kashmir Kaur, who ekes a living by working as a labourer at a brick kiln at Hardo Bathwala, has demanded justice from the CM.
