A man and his son have been arrested for allegedly killing a driver and dumping his body near the KMP expressway here, police said on Monday.
The accused have been identified as Suresh Kumar, a resident of Hisar’s Kanwari village, and his son Raj Kumar, they said.

The duo was arrested on Sunday from Ajijpur village in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura, police said, adding they were produced before a court and sent to two-day police remand.
According to the police, the body of a man was found abandoned near Ghuspaithi village adjoining the KMP expressway on December 29.
