Amritsar (Rural) Police on Thursday arrested Balwinder Singh and his brother Baldev Singh for allegedly killing Rupinder Kaur when she was asleep.

Inquiry Officer Harpal Singh said the deceased,a resident of Jandiala,was allegedly in a relationship with Sukhdev Singh (21),a resident of Jaanian village,for the past one year. Kaur belonged to Mazhabi Sikh community and her friend was from a Jat Sikh family.

“Balwinder,who retired as a sepoy from the Army,and his family were against Kaur’s wish to get married to Sukhdev. On September 11,Balwinder and his brother warned Kaur that they will kill her if she continued her affair. But,the girl did not budge from her stance and also told Sukhdev over the phone that she might be killed by her family. On this,Sukhdev told her that he will take her away in a few days,” the officer said.
