Hoshiarpur, January 20
The city police have booked a man and his mother for beating and torturing his wife.
Ajaypal Singh and his mother Ranvir Kaur, residents of Mohalla New Jagatpura, were booked under sections 323, 498 A and 506 of the IPC yesterday.

According to police sources, complainant Jatinderjit Kaur stated that after her husband had sold his share of property, he and his mother started torturing and forcing her to bring money from her parents to purchase a piece of land. She alleged that the duo had thrown her out of the house on many occasions over petty issues. To bail herself out from the regular beating and torture, she allegedly brought Rs 15 lakh from her parents and with which Ajaypal purchased three acres of land near Chotala village.

However, she stated, Ajaypal started beating her again and forced her to bring money from her parents to purchase a truck. To meet Ajaypal's demand, her parents gave her Rs 1.5 lakh with which Ajaypal went to England, where he stayed for a month and returned.

After coming back, Ajaypal allegedly told her to bring more money but this time, she refused.

On January 17 around 11.30 pm, he allegedly threw her out of the house but later allowed her to come inside. However, the next morning, Jatinderjit stated, Ajaypal and his mother beat her up mercilessly and threw her out of the house. She said she called her parents, who came to her rescue and got her admitted to the Civil Hospital, Hariana, where she is presently undergoing treatment.

Inspector Sukhwinder Singh, SHO, City Police Station, said the accused would be arrested soon.

Residents nab chain snatchers

Two youths, who snatched a gold chain from one Rachna Devi last night at Balmik Chowk, were nabbed by passersby. The accused have been identified as Gulshan Kumar and Manoj Kumar, residents of Mohalla Bhagat Nagar.

Polices sources said Rachna Devi and her husband Gurmit Singh, residents of Mohalla Bahadurpur, were going on a rickshaw when the two accused snatched Rachna Devi's chain near Balmik Chowk. The couple raised an alarm, following which some passersby caught hold of the youths. They were later handed over to the police.

Cops assaulted

A police party, which was raiding the house of Amandeep Singh, a resident of Sandhra Sodhian, to arrest him in connection with an FIR registered against him in the Bulhowal police station in August 2012, was assaulted by the accused, his friends and relatives.

Police sources said a police party of the Bulhowal police station led by Sub Inspector Kamaldev was raiding the house of Amandeep Singh around 8.40 pm last night but instead of cooperating with the police, Amandeep, his friends and relatives started assaulting the policemen. They ripped off the uniform of Punjab Home Guard Jawan Baldev Singh and damaged the police vehicle.

A case under sections 323, 353, 332, 427, 506, 307, 186, 148 and 149 of the IPC has been registered.

Man kills wife over matrimonial dispute
Our Correspondent

Nakodar, January 20
Sandip, a resident of nearby Zandiala village, allegedly killed his wife Sonu (23), a mother of two daughters, by throwing her in a pond near the old judicial complex here last evening.

The failure to settle a matrimonial dispute was said to be the cause of the murder, the police said.

The accused escaped after committing the crime, but the police has registered a case under Sections 302 and 120B of the IPC (murder and criminal conspiracy charges) against Sandip, his father Pal Singh, brother Raja, sister Jyoti and a relative Satya Devi.

Pal Singh and Satya Devi have been arrested, while the other three are at large.

The police said the victimís father Mangat Ram of nearby Malri village said that his daughter was married to Sandip seven years ago, but she was being tortured physically and mentally by her in-laws and was thrown out of the house on January 10.

The village panchayat listened their case and asked both parties to separate, as both had reached the point of no return. Both parties went to Nakodar Judicial Complex to write an agreement to get a divorce.

The police said during their conversation, the accused asked the woman to talk to him for reconciliation and took her near a pond. However, there he pushed her in the pond and escaped from the site. Hearing her hue and cry, the police sounded an alert and brought divers, who fished out the body from the pond. The body was sent to Nakodar Civil Hospital for post-mortem examination.
