Amritsar, November 7
A youth was murdered by several people because of an old enmity in the village of Naushehra Kalan, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Kamboh police station.
The deceased has been identified as Rajinder Singh (22).
Although the incident took place on November 5, Rajinder succumbed to his injuries on November 6.
Following a preliminary investigation, Amritsar Rural Police booked Simarjit Singh, Manga Singh, Sagar Singh, Deepak, Happy, Gurpreet Singh, Bagga Singh and Vishal Singh, all residents of the same village. No arrests have been made so far as all suspects were on the run.
Gurpinder Singh, brother of the deceased, told police that on November 5, he, his brother Rajinder and his father Gurmej Singh and other relatives were standing near the main door of their house. He said Simarjit and his accomplices got there and started to abuse. As they were reportedly intoxicated, they started throwing stones and bricks at us, Gurpinder said.
A brick hit Rajinder in the head, causing him to bleed profusely. Rajinder was immediately taken to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital where he died.
Harsimrat Kaur, SHO, Kamboh Police Station, said the body was handed over to the family after the autopsy and raids were underway to catch the suspects. She said an old feud was the reason for the incident.
According to reports, Rajinder had ventured into dog breeding and had become a competitor to the defendants who already practiced this profession. Earlier, they also quarreled. Police said they were still investigating the cause of the incident.
Police registered one case under Articles 302, 452, 323, 148 and 149 of the IPC against seven suspects.
