Ludhiana: two days after a verbal argument, a 20-year-old girl stabbed to death



A group of assailants killed a 20-year-old kabaddi player on Sunday with sharp weapons following a feud at a wedding party two days ago. Then they fled after throwing the body on the side of the road in Machhiwara.

The accused were identified as Kuldeep Singh alias Kenny from Rajgarh, Binda Nihang from Bhattian village, Laddi and Indra from Gehlewal village, Jaggi from Bhamma village, Sadiq from Samrala and their seven accomplices.

The victim has been identified as Amandeep Singh from Indira Colony, Machhiwara. He worked as a salesperson at a local bookstore. Relatives of the victim staged a demonstration in front of the Machhiwara police station on Monday, demanding the arrest of the accused.

Deputy Police Commissioner (DSP, Samrala) Jaswinder Singh Chahal told them that the defendants would be arrested within the next two days, after which they dropped the protest.

An FIR was filed based on the complaint of Manpreet Singh, the victim’s brother.

He said he received reports on Sunday that his brother had been in a traffic accident and was lying injured by the side of the road. He rushed his brother to the civilian hospital, from where he was referred to Ludhiana, but died on the way.

Manpreet added that the wounds on his brother’s body appeared to have been inflicted by sharp weapons.

He said his brother had a verbal argument with the accused at a wedding two days ago and they threatened to kill him.

Inspector Rajesh Thakur, a police officer at Machhiwara Police Station, said a murder case had been registered and special teams had been formed to arrest the accused.
