The district police claimed to have resolved the mystery behind a blind murder case within four hours. The murder had taken place in Bhikhiwind on the intervening night of Sunday and Monday. The body of Satnam Singh (28), a resident of Bhikhiwind, was found from fields on Monday.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Ashwani Kapur said on Tuesday that Manjit Kaur, sister-in-law (elder brother's wife) of the deceased, had informed the Bhikhiwind police that five assailants armed with sharp weapons trespassed their house on the intervening night of Sunday and Monday.

Manjit Kaur told the Bhikhiwind police that the assailants injured her brother-in-law. When she intervened to save Satnam, one of the assailants threatened her with a pistol.

The assailants took Satnam with them and his body was recovered from fields on Monday morning by the police. The deceased was unmarried and lived with his elder brother.

The SSP said that a case under Sections 450, 364, 380, 302, 148 and 149 of the IPC and Sections 25, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act was registered in this regard on the basis of Manjit Kaur's statement. The SSP said Mandeep Kaur, a resident of Margindpura village, and sister of the deceased, in her statement to the Bhikhiwind police, contradicted Manjit Kaur's statement.

She said that one of the assailants Sarabjit Singh, a resident of Mari Kamboke Colony (Bhikhiwind), was a friend of Abhay Singh, son of Manjit Kaur. He used to visit the complainant's house under the garb of friendship with Abhay. He developed illicit relations with Manjit Kaur.

Mandeep Kaur said Satnam Singh, who was unmarried, lived with his elder brother. Satnam was not happy with frequent visits of Sarabjit Singh to their house. Manjit Kaur incited her son Abhay against his uncle Satnam Singh.

Mandeep Kaur told the police that it was Sarabjit Singh who took his friends - Prince, Rola, Anmol, alias Akash, and Jassa - of the same locality, Mari Kamboke, armed with sharp weapons to her brother's residence. After injuring him with sharp weapons, the assailants took him along with his motorcycle and mobile phone. The suspects, after killing Satnam with sharp weapons, disposed of his body in fields.

The SSP said the police on the basis of investigation based on technical and scientific facts nominated Manjit Kaur, her son Abhay Singh, her paramour Sarabjit Singh, his friends Prince, Rola, Anmol alias Akash and Jassa as the suspects in the Satnam murder case.

The SSP said Manjit Kaur was arrested and her son Abhay Singh was detained for investigation.
