A drug addict, Gurjant Singh, a resident of Butar Sevian village, shot himself with the licensed weapon of his foster father Gurmej Singh here on Wednesday. He was perturbed after his in-laws took back his second wife following often quarrel due to his drug problem.

Gurmej Singh said Gurjant was married around eight years ago. But due to his drug problem, the couple got divorced. He said around one year ago, he was again married to Gurjit Kaur of Nikke Saran village. However, again due to his drug habits, there was often quarrel between the couple.

Udham Singh, investigating officer, said on Wednesday Gurjant returned and shot several fires at the gate and later shot himself with the same revolver. The police have booked Gurmej Singh, his wife Jasbir Kaur, their daughter Jaspal Kaur, her husband Manjinder Singh and an aunt Balwinder Kaur.
