During the questioning of the close relatives and associates of KJ Singh it has come to light that there was move to change the will of her mother, said Inspector General (IG), crime, Shashi Prabha.

Speaking to HT, she said, “It came to the fore that there was talk of changing the present will made by KJ’s mother. Therefore, we are focusing on the property angle, while simultaneously we are working on the woman angle.”

The final will made by Gurcharan Kaur on December 27, 2002, which states that her two sons Vijay Pal Singh and Karanjit Singh will bequeath House No. 1796, Sector 60 (Phase 3b2) in Mohali, and other immovable property wherever located and in whatever form, if acquired in future, to the two sons in equal proportion. All the household items, will be bequeathed to her younger son KJ as he is yet to set up his home and settle with his family.

‘TO CHECK BANK ACCOUNTS OF KIN’

The police officials have asked for the bank account details of all the family members to check the transactions made by them recently. The motive is to check any big transaction as police suspect that amount could have been paid to the assailants.

The police officials investigating the double murder case said they have got many pointers but yet to secure a breakthrough clue. Prabha said, “We have secured many clues but nothing vital that can help crack the case.” Police sources said that some suspects have been detained for sustained interrogation but no one has been arrested so far.

Meanwhile, KJ’s Ford Ikon car is yet to be recoverd and has become a puzzle for the police. It’s been a week now to the blind murder of KJ Singh and his mother Gurcharan Kaur. So far, the police have only managed to find the car passing through Phase 3B2 and 7 light points at midnight and then through Balongi area.

“So, far the car is nowhere to be found in Punjab. We suspect that the assailants must have fled towards Haryana or Delhi,” said Prabha.

After the conclusion of ‘bhog’ ceremony on Thursday, family members were questioned for long about the victim’s life and circumstances leading up to the murder. In search of a desperate clue, carpenters and servants 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.
