The Commissionerate Police on Tuesday solved a case of murder of a 22-year-old youth within two days by nabbing all three accused. The arrested persons have been identified as Umesh (44), Ganesh Ram (40), and Gulshan (24), all residents of Chhattisgarh.

Divulging the details, Commissioner of Police Gurpreet Singh Bhullar said the victim, Dharamveer Parsad, and the daughter of one of the accused, Ganesh Ram, were in relationship which Ganesh never liked.

He wanted her daughter to get married with 24-year-old Gulshan, who also liked her. This love triangle led to this heinous crime as Ganesh Ram, Gulshan along with his uncle Umesh killed Dharamveer at an under-construction building at Reru village near Pathankot Chowk.

The Commissionerate Police stated that all three accused inflicted sharp injuries on the face of the victim that proved fatal for him. All the accused had been arrested and their police remand would be sought from court to recover the weapon used in the crime.

The CP said investigation would be completed and a charge-sheet would be presented against the accused in the court within the stipulated time-frame to bring all the accused to justice.
