An ex-Army man gunned down two brothers following a land dispute at Santokh Rai village falling under the jurisdiction of the Dhariwal police station.

Dilpreet Singh (24), who in December last year had returned from France where he used to work, and Gagandeep Singh (28) were shot dead by Jaswinder Singh, who retired from the Army recently, with a .12 bore gun.

Both parties were involved in a dispute over a tract of land. SSP Rajinder Singh Sohal said the incident occurred at a dera near Santokh Rai village falling in the jurisdiction of the Dhariwal police station. The SSP said Jaswinder Singh and his wife had been nabbed.

"The weapon used in the crime has also been recovered. I have formed a team, led by a senior officer, to go into the exact sequence of events leading to the murders. The brothers and the accused had an old rivalry over the possession of land. We have also arrested Jaswinder's wife who is said to have instigated her husband into committing the crime," said the SSP.

He added that a case under various sections of the IPC, including 302 (murder) had been registered against five persons. "The case has been registered on a complaint filed by one Gurpreet Singh, a resident of the village where the crime took place. Apart from Jaswinder Singh and his wife Harjinder Kaur, the other accused are Sukhmandeep Singh, Lovepreet Singh and Amandeep Kaur," he said.
