Mohali: The Mohali police on Thursday again questioned the family members regarding the double murder case of senior journalist KJ Singh, 63, and his mother Gurcharan Kaur, 92.

After the conclusion of the ‘Bhog’ ceremony on Thursday, family members were questioned for long about the victim’s life and circumstances prevailing in his life.

Incidentally, there has been no media briefing of the case and police have not been able to make a breakthrough, a week after the murder. Sources said the police strategy for investigation has been questionable since the case came to light, as the entire rank and file got involved, instead of a seasoned team being given charge.

In search of a desperate clue, carpenters who recently worked in KJ’s house are being questioned to prepare a list of frequent visitors in the period leading up to the gruesome murder.

Need to maintain law and order in Mohali

Speaking after the bhog ceremony, former Punjab assembly speaker Bir Devinder Singh said, “The government and the police need to make the city of Mohali crime free. People from abroad and rural areas are also settling here.”

He added that the police needed to increase night patrolling to ensure that the elderly felt safe. “Criminal elements must fear police,” he said.
