Cantonment police station SHO Ajaib Singh Aujla said based on the statement of the deceased’ wife and the suicide note recovered from his house, a case under Sections 306 and 34 of the IPC has been registered against advocate Dipika, Trilochan Sharma, Narinder, Sheetal and Indra Prakash. Gill is survived by his wife and two sons.
