A 32-year-old man went to meet his girlfriend at her house in Verka, but was reportedly killed by the girl’s family members on Tuesday night.

The deceased has been identified as Jagtar Singh, alias Jagga, of Navi Abadi Verka. The police have booked the woman and her two brothers in this regard.

According to a police source, Jagga had an affair with a girl near Shankar di Chaki in Verka. Last night, Jagga went to meet her at her house. He was reportedly thrashed by the girl’s brothers. The body of Jagtar was recovered from her house. The family members of the woman were absconding.

The police officials, who visited the spot on Wednesday morning, said during preliminary investigation, they found that he was strangled to death. The Station House Officer, Verka Police station, said a small cord was recovered from the spot and it is being observed that Jagga was strangled to death with the cord by the girl’s brothers.

The police have booked Jagga’s girlfriend and her brothers — Ashwani Kumar and Dharminder Kumar — for murder.

“The cause of death will be cleared after the autopsy,” the SHO said.

According to the information, Jagga was married and had two daughters while the woman was unmarried. Following this, the girl’s family was unhappy with this relationship.
