Hoshiarpur, April 27

In a case of ‘honour killing’, the police have arrested three persons for murdering a 19-year-old girl. Among the held include mother Balwinder, uncle Satdev and a cousin of deceased Jaspreet Kaur. The arrested cousin is posted in the CM’s security wing.

Station house officer Iqbal Singh said it was a case of honour killing and the accused had confessed to it.

Earlier, the family, hailing from Souli village, had claimed that Jaspreet died of a heart attack.

On April 22, mother complained to the police that her daughter had gone missing. She had blamed Amanpreet Singh, alias Aman, for it.

On April 23, Balwinder informed the police that Jaspreet had reached home.

Sources said Jaspreet went to Aman’s house and returned after intervention of the panchayat.

Sources said on the intervening night of April 25 and 26, Balwinder gave Jaspreet sleeping pills. When she fell asleep, Shivraj and his friend Lala strangled her.

Around midnight, they along with Satdev and Gurdeep burnt Jaspreet’s body to erase the evidence of her murder. However, the police got to know about it. — TNS
