With the arrest of four persons, the police claimed to have solved the blind murder case of a middle-aged man who was shot by unidentified persons near Ladhuka village in the district on October 29.

Sadar police station SHO Shubham Agarwal said Rachhpal Singh's (50) cousins allegedly hired a shooter to eliminate him over a land dispute.

The police said the victim's family and their cousins were involved in a dispute over five acres for three generations. Rachhpal's cousins Narinder Singh, Harbhajan Singh and nephew Gurcharan Singh allegedly paid Gurmeet Singh Rs 2.5 lakh as blood money to eliminate him. On October 29, Gurmeet allegedly chased Rachhpal, a resident of Chak Mohamdewala village, while he was on his way back home and shot him near Ladhuka village, the police said. — OC
