The Chandigarh Police are yet to trace the 43-year-old Mandeep Singh, who is accused of murdering his wife.

Meanwhile, sources said the Maruti car in which the suspect had left the city with his two sons was found abandoned in Punjab. However, police officials are tight-lipped over the recovery of the car.

Victim Jyoti Rani (40), a government school teacher, was found dead at her house in Sector 23 on the intervening night of September 15 and 16. She had an injury on the rear of her head, which led to her death.

Mandeep had left home with his two songs, aged 13 and 9 on September 14, on the pretext of paying obeisance at a gurdwara. After paying obeisance at a gurdwara in Ludhiana, he took both his sons to a canal near Ludhiana and stopped the car claiming it had developed some snag. Mandeep then took his elder son towards canal and pushed him into it. However, his son managed to survive.
