A 28-year-old man allegedly murdered his 33-year-old sister-in-law at Master Colony in Tarn Taran on Sunday as the victim reportedly stopped him from consuming drugs. Police are conducting raids to nab Kanwalpreet Singh, who works as a teacher, for the alleged murder of Kulwinder Kaur, who also used to work as teacher in a private school.
Kulwinder Kaur's husband Manpreet Singh claimed that Kanwalpreet, a government teacher, came to his house at about 7:30 am, walked towards bedroom with him without saying anything to him and shot Kulwinder in the chest from his licensed gun as she lay in the bed.
"A bachelor, Kanwalpreet was a drug addict and my wife used to stop him from consuming drugs. He murdered my wife at the behest of some influential persons with whom he used to roam. Those persons instigated my brother making him suspect that my wife did not want to see him get married and settle in life. Due to this, he had been in a state of depression. We had been seeking to get his arms license cancelled and his weapon confiscated for long, but our requests fell on deaf ears. I hold Tarn Taran police squarely responsible for my wife's murder," Manpreet alleged.
While Tarn Taran Senior Superintendent of Police K S Dhillon did not answer calls made to him, Sadar SHO Onkar Singh denied that Manpreet ever approached police before Sunday's incident.
