A man was killed and his son seriously injured when they were attacked by a commission agent in the grain market of Sabhra village in Patti subdivision here on Monday.

The deceased has been identified as Balwinder Singh (50), and his son Ranjit Singh of the same village. Ranjit was under treatment in a private hospital of Amritsar.

The victim, a truck driver, worked with the commission agent, Jagtar Singh, for lifting and taking paddy to the godown.

As soon as the victim gave him the slip of his previous round regarding the weight of the paddy, the accused suspected that Balwinder Singh had stolen some bags of paddy from the truck on the way. Both indulged in a verbal duel and the accused in a fit of anger attacked him with a sharp-edged weapon. When his son came to his rescue, the accused also attacked him.

Both were brought to the Civil Hospital, Patti, but Balwinder Singh succumbed to the injuries on the way.

The Patti Sadar police have registered a case under Sections 302, 307, 323 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The accused absconded after leaving them injured.
