A woman and her daughter were killed with an ax in Bhunerheri village on the outskirts of Patiala district on Monday night. Harpreet was beheaded in the attack, police sources said.

The victims have been identified as Harpreet Kaur, 45, and her daughter Navdeep Kaur, 18.

Police said one of the two attackers was identified as Harpreet’s husband, Gurmukh Singh, working in the Indian Army.

Police said the victims were attacked with a sharp weapon while shopping at the market. Prior to the attack, Gurmukh reportedly had a heated argument with them.

DSP Sukhwinder Chauhan said there was a family dispute over a four-acre plot. The family was originally from Budhlada town in Mansa district. However, the accused’s wife had recently moved into rented accommodation in the village of Bhuneriheri, where her relatives were already living.
