Police said the accused was unemployed.

Inspector Kulwant Singh, SHO Samrala police station, said that not only the accused, but even his father was a chronic alcoholic and hadn’t returned home for the past two days. “Both father-son used to fight with Bhinder Kaur on daily basis for money. On Monday morning at around 5 am, there was again an argument and neighbours heard the cries of the woman but since it was a routine thing, they ignored it.
