A 22-year-old youth shot dead his ex-girlfriend and her parents at her house in the densely populated Kamla Nehru Colony in the city. Later, he committed suicide by shooting himself.

The deceased have been identified as Simran Kaur (20), her father Charanjit Singh Khokhar (45), who worked as a secretary at a cooperative society in Bibiwala village and mother Jaswinder Kaur (43). The youth has been identified as Yuvikaran Singh of Mansa Khurd village.

Bathinda SSP Bhupinderjit Singh Virk said, "Three persons were found murdered at a house today after which teams were constituted. The police cracked the case within four hours." He said the youth, before going to Simran's house on Sunday night, recorded a video on his phone in which he accused Simran of blackmailing him for getting him implicated in a rape case if he did not marry her.

In the video, the youth alleged that he was in a relationship with Simran two years ago but sometime back, he came to know that she was in a relationship with a man in Canada, due to which he broke up with her.

Later, she started harassing him to get married to her. When he did not attend her calls, she started calling and harassing his parents. Irked, he took the extreme step.

The SSP said the police had seized the weapon used in the crime. It was a licensed weapon registered in the name of his brother. After his death, the family members of Yuvikaran cremated his body without informing anyone.

The incident took place on Sunday night around 8.30 pm but came to light on Monday morning when the milkman came, but no one answered the doorbell. After getting the information, the police reached the spot and went inside the house, where they found bodies of three persons in a pool of blood.
