Tarn Taran, May 13

A drug addict shot his wife, identified as Paramjit Kaur (32), who died at her parents’ home in the village of Kot Data last Thursday evening and later committed suicide.

Inderjit Singh, a resident of Boparai (Patti), was serious and taken to a local private hospital, where his condition was critical. He then succumbed to his injuries.

The defendant came from a well-to-do farming family and had married into an equally well-off family about eight years ago. Differences developed between the couple soon after the wedding. As a result, Paramjit had been living separately in his parents’ house in Kot Data village for about six years.

The accused had posted videos a few days ago against his wife on his social networks. The couple had a 7-year-old daughter.

SI Harjit Singh, SHO, Harike said he received the report around 1:30 a.m. and quickly reached the place. He said the accused entered the house by jumping the walls of his in-laws’ house and entered the room where Paramjit and his daughter were sleeping. He shot her and then attempted to kill himself as well. He was taken to a local private hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries on Friday.

The SHO said a case under Section 302 of the IPC and Sections 25, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act had been registered by Harike Police. The weapon used in the crime has been seized, SHO said.
