Hakam Singh (61) of Bathinda district was allegedly murdered by truck driver Kulwant Singh of Moga district (Punjab), at the Tikri border on March 25, the police said.

Kulwant (48) allegedly had an illicit relationship with Hakam’s “bhabhi” (wife of younger brother) Karamjeet Kaur (47), who was also involved in the crime. She pressurised Kulwant to commit the crime, said the police.

Both accused have been arrested. Hakam was found murdered behind the new bus-stand in Bahadurgarh.

“Kulwant and Kaur hatched a plot to kill Hakam who kept a watch on Kulwant when he visited their house. Kulwant, along with Hakam, came to Tikri on March 25 to join the agitation. He killed Hakam at the behest of Kaur,” said Vijay Kumar, SHO, City Police Station, Bahadurgarh.
