In the Morni murder case, the police today recovered the weapon allegedly used by the two suspects to kill their 34-year-old friend over a monetary issue of Rs5.5 lakh.

The suspects were produced in a local court, which remanded them in one-day police custody.

The victim, Rajiv of Dera Bassi, who was earlier working in a factory that got shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic and was now unemployed, had given the money to the suspects to help him settle in Canada and find a suitable job there, the police said.

They said the crime was planned as the victim was seeking return of the money given to the suspects, but they did not want to.

Arvind Kamboj, SHO of the Chandimandir police station, said the weapon was recovered from a location disclosed by the suspects during questioning. The victim was murdered by his two friends, Gurvinder (35) and Jaspal (36), on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday.

Two policemen spotted the suspects near the crime scene when they were patrolling the area. After being spotted, the suspects tried to run over the policemen, but they had a miraculous escape.

While inspecting the area, the policemen found the victim’s body in nearby bushes.

The body bore injury marks on the head, the police said.

The suspects were arrested by the police last evening. The police had impounded a car used by the suspects. The car belonged to Gurvinder, the police said. A case under Sections 201, 302, 307 and 34 of the IPC was registered at the Chandimandir police station.
