Dorah, July 9
Doraha Police say they have solved the murder mystery of former Chankoian Khurd sarpanch, Jagdev Singh. The police, after the investigation, came to the conclusion that the drug-addicted son of the deceased committed the murder.
Khanna SSP Ravi Kumar speaking at a press conference today said that a team led by SP(I), Khanna, Amandeep Singh Brar, managed to solve the mystery of the murder of the former village sarpanch from Chankoian Khurd in less than 24 hours. DSP (I), Khanna, Manjit Singh, Payal DSP Harwinder Singh Khaira, Manager, CIA, Khanna, Vinod Kumar and Doraha SHO Lakhveer Singh were part of the team.
The Payal DSP said Jaswinder Singh, alias Jassi, the eldest son of the deceased, was named as the perpetrator of the murder.
“During the investigation, it was discovered that Jaswinder was heading to the animal farm where his father was sitting in a chair around the same time the murder took place. It was also revealed that Jaswinder was wearing a plaid shirt at the time which had bloodstains on it. Later, he changed it to hide the evidence. However, he forgot to change the shorts, which also had bloodstains on it. The police obtained these details from village residents and CCTV footage,” he said.
“Jaswinder was found to be a drug addict and idler. His father worked alone in the fields and in the dairy farm even at an advanced age. His youngest son, who remained in Canada, provided financial assistance to his father to support himself. He also used to send money for his trip to Canada. Jaswinder thought his father was more inclined towards his younger son. He was annoyed with the deceased for paying more attention to his younger brother. Moreover, he also did not receive money to buy drugs when he used to ask for them. Above all, the greed to seize his father’s land and property forced the suspect to kill him. Based on a thorough investigation, Jaswinder was named as his father’s killer. It will soon be stopped,” the DSP said.
The body of the deceased was found lying in a pool of blood by one of his servants who came around 2 p.m. Friday to carry out his daily duties. He was hit on the head with bladed weapons. Her fingers were also mercilessly cut off. Jagdev resided in Canada with his wife and youngest son. He had come to live with his eldest son and his family in the village and was due to return to Canada in the coming days.
