A registered medical practitioner (RMP) allegedly stabbed a 23-year-old Dalit youth to death at Talwandi Mohar Singh village in Patti sub-division of the district.
Police have registered a case against the prime accused, Harjinder Singh of Bhai Ladhu village, and his two unidentified aides who had a tiff with the victim, Kulwinder Singh and another man.
All the accused are absconding, the police said.
In her complaint, the victim’s wife Jyoti told the police that her husband along with Amrik Singh of the same village went to the RMP’s clinic on Sunday evening.
The RMP asked Amrik to give his Rs 900 which the latter owed him. When Amrik refused, a quarrel ensued, she said.
Her husband tried to defuse the situation but the RMP stabbed him twice, leaving him dead on the spot, Jyoti said.
The couple was married two years ago.
Patti station house officer (SHO) Rajesh Kakkar said, “A case under section 302 (punishment for murder), 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against the accused. They will be arrested soon.”
