Mohali, June 16

A 65-year-old manager of a farmhouse here was allegedly axed to death by three of his workers, including a minor, over a petty dispute.

The victim has been identified as Balkar Singh, a resident of Sohian Kalan village in Amritsar district. Balkar was working as a manager at Kahlon Farms near Nada village here for the past 35 years.

The suspects have been identified as Mukesh (20), Manish (20) and a minor, all residents of Hardoi district in Uttar Pradesh. They used to work for Balkar at his farmhouse where they used to live in a room.

The police said Balkar was unhappy with their drinking habits. They used to have heated arguments over the issue for the past few days. The suspects attacked Balkar with an axe while he was asleep in his room at the farmhouse on Sunday night.

The suspects fled from the spot, leaving Balkar in a pool of blood. The victim was admitted to the PGI, Chandigarh, where he succumbed to his injuries this afternoon, said the police.

The police recovered the axe used in the crime from the spot. The body has been kept in the mortuary for post-mortem examination.

Nayagaon Station House Officer Ashok Kumar said: “Disagreement over small issues between Balkar and his workers led to the crime. On Monday, we had booked the suspects under Sections 307, 323 and 34 of the IPC on the statement of the victim’s son, Ajit Singh. A case of murder was registered against them today. We have sent police teams in Hardoi district to nab the suspects. We are also getting help from our technical wing to crack the case soon.”

All suspects from Uttar Pradesh
