Bathinda, September 7

The Bathinda police have cracked the murder case of Youth Akali Dal (YAD) leader Sukhanpreet Singh within 24 hours. A monetary dispute is said to be the reason behind the murder.

Deceased Sukhanpreet Singh had reportedly taken Rs 3 lakh on loan from the accused three years ago. He had promised to return Rs 1 lakh on Saturday night, but was able to arrange only Rs 40,000. That led to an altercation between the two and the accused fired at Sukhanpreet using his licensed weapon, leading to his death.

Bathinda SSP Bhupinderjit Singh Virk said, "A probe team was constituted to crack the case and accused Sanjay Thakur

of Partap Nagar was arrested. The weapon used in the crime has also been recovered."

Call records of Sukhanpreet helped police nab the accused from Jail Singhwala village, he added.
