Tarn Taran, September 23

A clash between two addict brothers claimed the life of one in Bodalkeeri village, falling under Verowal police station, on Wednesday.

The deceased has been identified as Mehal Singh (45), who was hit on his head with a brick by his younger brother Roop Singh Roopa and his wife Harjit Kaur of the same village.

Varinder Singh, DSP/SHO Verowal, said the accused trespassed the residence of the deceased on Tuesday night and indulged in a verbal duel, which led to a clash. Harjit Kaur caught hold of Mehal Singh and her husband Roop Singh hit him with a brick on his head.

Surjit Kaur, wife of Mehal Singh, admitted him to Jandiala Guru Hospital in a serious condition. The doctors, after giving him medical treatment, discharged him soon. But his condition deteriorated on Wednesday again and as they were on their way to the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries. A case under Section 302 and 34 of the IPC was registered against Roop Singh and his wife Harjit Kaur by the Verowal police.

DSP Varinder Singh said the accused have been arrested and were produced in court on Thursday. The court sent them in 14 days’ judicial custody. — OC
