A twenty-year-old migrant from Bihar was allegedly beaten to death by factory owner Sanjay Singh and his three workers on Sunday.
Sonu Kumar worked at a Sahnewal-based factory making keys and other parts and lived with his uncle Sikander Singh in Nichi Mangli area. However,on Sunday evening,he did not come back home after work and Sikanders neighbour told him that his nephew was being beaten up by Sanjay Singh and few others outside the factory.
Sikander reached the spot immediately and found his nephew bleeding. He even vomited blood. On this,the factory owner hurriedly took him to a private doctor along with Sikander but he was declared dead on arrival.
Investigating officer Dhanwant Singh said the police had registered an FIR against Sanjay and three others but all were absconding.
The officer said the body was lying in civil hospital for post-mortem and they were waiting for the victims parents to arrive.
