In a shocking incident,Barjinder Singh (24) shot dead his older sister and her lover on Wednesday. The honour killing took place at Hambran village at about 4 am. The bodies have been handed over their respective families after post mortem. The two were shot by a weapon that the family had not deposited with the police,as ordered by the Election Commission,claiming that they needed it to protect their family.
ACP Gurpreet Singh said,Navdeep Kaur (25) was found in a compromising position with her lover Harpreet Singh Johal (30) by Barjinder,who could not control his anger and pumped four bullets into Harpreet. Navdeep tried to flee but Barjinder shot her dead by pumping two bullets into her. Navdeep Kaur and Harpreet Singh Johal were having relations and her family was aware of the affair. Kaur belonged to a rich family. Her father is a landlord and deals in property,while Harpreet was a graduate in business administration,but unemployed. He was trying to go abroad for a better future. Navdeeps family did not approve of the alliance.
The boy did not try and flee from the spot of crime and when we arrested him he did not seem to be in the right state of mind. Though he has confessed to the murder,he is not showing regret or remorse. The father of the deceased did tell us that the affair was under contention between family members,he never thought that it would take this turn, added ACP Gurpreet Singh.
