Man gets life for murder

A local court on Friday imprisoned a resident of Ram Darbar for life after he was held guilty for murdering a fellow resident. Out of the three accused, two other co-accused were acquitted as no conclusive evidence was established to hold them guilty.

The incident took place in October 2011 when Lakhwinder Singh, a resident of Ram Darbar, had a dispute with his neighbors Munish (24), Jaspal (49) and Jaspal's son Vijay (27). Later, Lakhwinder again had a spat with Jaspal, Munish and Vijay on October 29, 2011 in which he was attacked with a cement slab on his head. He was rushed to Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32 where the doctors declared him dead on arrival.

No conclusive evidence was found against Jaspal and Munish. However, Vijay was convicted on charges of murder.
