The bodies of a labourer's wife from Giana village in Bathinda district and her minor son and daughter were fished from the Bhakhra Canal on Saturday at Kalanwali village in neighbouring Haryana. The woman's father has alleged it to be a murder made to appear as suicide and blamed his son-in-law.

Manjit Kaur (28), Jashandeep Singh (10), and Gurpreet Kaur (6) are the victims. Assistant sub-inspector Jagdev Singh, who got there from the Rama police station in Bathinda district, said the husband of Manjit Kaur had found her with another man in his house on Thursday (May 28) and cast aspersions on her character.

"The house was bolted from inside, so her husband scaled the boundary wall to get in, at which the other man inside ran away. The husband of Manjit Kaur then beat her up," said the ASI, adding: "Soon after, he went back to work, and the woman walked out with her children. Some Giana villagers who saw her going over to Haryana thought the three were on way to her sister's house at Desumalkana village in the neighbouring state."

Sukhdev Singh, father of the victim woman, has alleged that his daughter's husband killed the three and threw the bodies into the canal to pass it off as suicide. Anil Kumar, station house (SHO) officer of Kalanwali in Haryana, said the police would act after they had the autopsy report of the three victims.
