Reliving the trauma of the death of his son, Kashmir Singh, father of DSP Balraj Gill, said, "I just got to know that the police is investigating the matter and has arrested three people. But nobody from the department has approached us or intimated us officially. I had met police commissioner Ishwar Singh five days ago and he had assured me to solve the case."
On being asked whether he was satisfied with the ongoing investigation, Gill said, "It is not for me to comment as the cops have not taken us into confidence for anything. All we can do is to wait and hope that the real culprits are brought to book."
After 64 days of the double murder of Moga DSP Balraj Gill and Monika Kapila, wife of a city industrialist, the Ludhiana police commissionerate claimed to have nabbed the culprits along with the weapons used in executing the crime.
Having worked upon various theories of contract killing, honour killing and hacking to death by robbers, the arrested criminals have admitted to hacking to death the two after robbing them of their belongings, that included gold jewellery, cash, mobile phones and vehicles.
Gill and Kapila, a resident of Model Town here, were brutally murdered on February 1 at Agnihotri farmhouse near Golf Link Apartments on Hambran Road, 7 km from Ludhiana. Since all the officials in the two special instigating teams were working round the clock on the case.
As the police are still investigating the case to ascertain the "actual motive" behind the murder, sources in the police have revealed that the accused were investigated twice in the recent past but were let off as the SIT members could not get any clue.
It has also been learnt that the village sarpanch on getting a tip-off convinced one of the accused to surrender himself to the police that led to the arrest of the remaining two. It is also learnt that the accused were drug addicts and were under the influence of smack when they mercilessly killed the two.
Sources said Gill even offered them money in lieu of their lives, but the killers after seeing his identity card decided to kill the two.
