Using foul words for the wife of an estranged friend cost 24-year-old Satwinder Singh, alias Simmu, his life as he succumbed to his injuries at the PGI today. He was attacked by his former friend Sonu and his three accomplices near Fun City here on October 18.

Sonu was still at large while the police had arrested Ravinder, Mayank and Raman, the other three accused. One of the accused revealed that revenge was the reason and Sonu had convinced them that he was wronged by his former friend.

It was revealed during interrogation that Satwinder was a close friend of Sonu before certain differences cropped up between the two on personal issues.

“During heated arguments, Satwinder used foul words for Sonu’s wife. Sonu lost his cool and decided to pay him back. He convinced us that he had been wronged and we decided to teach Satwinder a lesson,” he said.

Confirming the development, inspector Jungsher, SHO of the Chandi Mandir police station, who led the investigating team, said Ravinder, Mayank and Raman had been arrested and Sonu would be arrested soon.

Satwinder was a resident of Baman Hara village, near Ropar. He had been working as computer mechanic at the Sector-20 market here.

During their days of friendship, Sonu had purchased an LCD and given it to Satwinder.

Sonu had issued cheques from his account. As Satwinder allegedly did not deposit the money, the cheques had bounced. Sonu had then been arrested by the Chandi Mandir police.

After he was released on bail, Sonu had asked Satwinder to return the money. During arguments, Satwinder used foul words against Sonu’s wife.

An enraged, Sonu, with the help of his cousin Ravinder and friends Mayank and Raman, conspired to teach Satwinder a lesson. On October 18, they gave a call on Satwinder’s phone for the repairs of a computer.

They asked him to come near Fun City at Ramgarh. When he reached the spot, he was attacked.

He was injured seriously and died at the PGI today.
