The feud between Namdhari sect head Satguru Uday Singh and his estranged brother Thakur Dalip Singh turned murkier on Wednesday with the former alleging that Dalip Singh was an “obvious suspect” in the Namdhari sect martriach Chand Kaur’s murder.

“This is the third attack on us in the past five years and who else could be the interested party,” Uday Singh told reporters after meeting director general of police Suresh Arora at Bhaini Sahib.

“In 2011, our ardent follower Avtar Singh was shot. The 2015 Dugri car bombing directly points towards Dalip Singh. And now a pious lady (Chand Kaur) has been brutally murdered,” he said.

“The DGP has provided assurance to us that they will crack the case soon. I am hopeful that the special investigating team will do its job,” he added.

Give SIT a deadline: Ex-PPCC chief

Former PPCC chief HS Hanspal Singh, who again visited Bhaini Sahib on Wednesday, urged the state government to set a deadline for the SIT to crack the case. “We can’t wait endlessly for a murder to be solved. The man who attacked Satguru Uday Singh in the UK in 2014 is cooling his heels in the jail. We need to learn a lesson from them,” said Hanspal. “I don’t want that deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal should give up the home portfolio, but he can at least ensure that the SIT completes its job in a speedy manner,” he said.
