Ferozepur, May 3
In a tragic incident, two women were killed on the spot while a third was grievously injured when their father-in-law, identified as Harbans Singh, allegedly opened fire at them with his .315 bore licensed gun.

Later, the old man also shot himself dead. The reason behind the dastardly act could not be ascertained.

According to the information available, the women belonging to a family in Dhani Budha Shah, on the outskirts of village Chak Soumaya in Guruharsahai sub-division, were preparing "langar" when Harbans Singh, 60, arrived with his .315 bore rifle.

Without any provocation, Harbans opened fire at the womenfolk in which his own daughter-in-law Navdeep Kaur, wife of Amrik Singh and Ramandeep Kaur, the daughter-in-law of his brother, died on the spot while Lakhvir Kaur, who was critically injured, was referred to a private hospital in Ludhiana.

Senior Superintendent of Police Hardial Singh Mann said the police was looking into the various theories behind the gruesome incident.

Market committee staff lodge protest against chairman

Muktsar, May 3
The employees of the Market Committee, Muktsar, today lodged a protest against the rude behaviour of its chairman, Jagdev Singh Bullar, alleging that he used abusive language with a clerk this afternoon.

The employees, lodging protest outside the office, said the chairman ordered his secretary to mark absent a clerk Avtar Singh, who was deputed at the Jhabelwali purchase centre and was preparing a monthly report at the office in Muktsar. "When the clerk came to know about the development, he went inside the chairman's office to meet him, but the latter used foul language, which forced us to lodge a protest against him," said the employees.

Meanwhile, Jagdev Singh told the scribes that the farmers of Jhabelwali had complained to him about the absence of the clerk Avtar Singh, which forced him to take action against him. "Now, the employees are making it an issue," said Jagdev. ó TNS
