Two residents of Dhanauri village were arrested today for allegedly killing an income tax lawyer over a property dispute. The accused, identified as Gurmail Singh, alias Rodu, and Rajwinder Singh, alias Ratna, after killing Kulbir Singh, a resident of Kharar, on July 31, disposed of his body and his car in Bhakra Canal.

While the body was found from a canal near Patiala yesterday, the police today recovered the car from a canal near Rangeelpur.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Akhil Chaudhary said Gurjant Singh, brother of the deceased, lodged a complaint with the police yesterday that Kulbir Singh had been missing since he left home on July 31 to visit Gurmail and Rajwinder at Dhanauri village. Suspecting the hand of Gurmail and Rajwinder, Gurjant informed the police that Kulbir had a dispute with them over a property in Chandigarh. The SSP claimed the accused had confessed that they killed Kubir to get rid of the civil case regarding a house in Chandigarh. He said it was yet to ascertain that how they killed Kulbir and the involvement of other people. A case under Sections 302, 201 and 34 of the IPC has been registered against the accused.
