A day after a man was found murdered, Kharar police arrested the victim’s ‘friend’ who had allegedly committed the crime.
The accused, who drank alcohol with the victim before committing the murder, said that the victim had ill intentions towards his wife, which triggered him.
SP (Rural) Ravjot Kaur Grewal said on Friday that the victim’s body was found near labour chowk on Thursday morning following which the police parties had started the investigation to identify the man. “He was identified as Abu Talib, who resided in Khanpur village with his wife and children. His wife Pinky identified him,” SP Grewal added.
