Twelve persons, including a sarpanch, have been booked for killing 25-year-old Babbar Singh and injuring two others of his family, reportedly due to an old enmity, at the Patrewala village, 20 km from here, on Saturday night.

In an FIR registered on the statement of the victim's brother Davinder Singh, who is recovering at the civil hospital here, the police have booked village sarpanch Gurwinder Singh, Kulwinder Singh Babbu, Surinder Singh Saipu, private medical practitioner Varinder, Jaspreet Singh Bota, Surjit Singh, Ram Krishan, Mukhtiar Singh, Giani Mohinder Singh, Gurmeet Singh, Gora and Raju.

Preliminary investigations reportedly indicated that at least three persons in police uniform, along with nine others, wielding sharp-edged weapons and firearms, barged into a house at 11 pm and allegedly killed Babbar Singh aka Babbi.

They also assaulted his mother Issar Kaur and Davinder when they tried to intervene.

The accused fled when some villagers responded to cries for help.
