The Yamunanagar police have apprehended a juvenile for allegedly murdering his grandfather and the latter’s second wife in Bakala village, falling under the Sadhaura block of the district.

The child-in-conflict with law (17 years and 8 month old) was produced before Amit Gautam, Principal Magistrate of Juvenile Justice Board, Yamunanagar, today who sent him to place of safety in Karnal.

Roshan Lal (72), a retired baildar from Public Works Department, and his second wife Paramjeet Kaur (55) were murdered by an unknown person at their village yesterday.

SP Kamal Deep Goyal said the first wife of the deceased had died several years ago. Paramjeet Kaur was living with him for the past eight to nine months.

The police took less than 24 hours to crack the case by apprehending the youth, who is the only child-in-conflict with law in the case.

SHO Balbir Singh said the child told the police that his grandfather used to threaten to sell off his agriculture land and other property, depriving them of their right from inherited property. “A regular quarrel used to take place in the house regarding the same, leading to the murder of the elderly couple,” the SHO stated.

The child used an axe to kill his grandparents.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the elderly couple were handed over to their kin after postmortem examination.
