Amritsar, July 4

Over a month after a man was found dead under mysterious circumstances at Jethuwal village, the police have booked his wife and her alleged paramour on charges of murder and disposing of his body. They were identified as Amandeep Kaur and Charanjit Singh of the same village.

Sukhwant Singh, a resident of Jethuwal village, told the police that his son Hari Singh (35) was married to Amandeep Kaur of Gaddian village in Gurdaspur around 12 years ago. He said Charanjit Singh would often visit their house, after which Sukhwant got suspicious of Amandeep having an illicit relationship with Charanjit. “On May 22, Charanjit came to our house and he, along with Hari Singh and Amandeep Kaur, stayed on the first floor of the house till late night. Around 5 am, when I called my son, Amandeep told that he was not feeling well. When I went upstairs, I found him dead,” said Sukhwant.

He said the suspects cremated the body in haste, without getting an autopsy done. Later, he lodged a complaint with the police.

A police official said after a getting a preliminary probe done and obtaining legal opinion from the District Attorney, a case under Sections 302, 201 and 34 of the IPC had been registered against Amandeep Kaur and Charanjit Singh.
