Nathana station house officer Sandeep Singh said the accused have been identified as Beant Kaur’s brother Balkaran Singh, uncle Hansa Singh and cousin Kirpal Singh.

All three are absconding and efforts are on to arrest them.

The couple had solemnised a court marriage four years ago and Jagmeet did not have cordial relations with Beant’s family.

“According to preliminary investigation, Beant was living with her parents. When Jagmeet, who stayed in Bathinda city, went to meet his wife on Sunday, he was attacked by her brother, uncle and cousin. The accused used sharp-edged agricultural implements. Beant intervened to save Jagmeet, but the accused attacked her, too. Both died on the spot,” SHO Sandeep Singh said.
