Within a few hours of the death of a newly married woman, identified as Komal (26), in mysterious circumstances in Green Land, Hadiabad, on Saturday, the police have arrested three persons - her husband Amarjit Singh, his father Baljit Singh and mother Arwinder Kaur - on the charges of murder.

The allegations

Sarabjit Kaur, mother of the deceased, has levelled allegations against her in-laws that the girl was beaten to death. She noticed injury marks on the neck and the back of her daughter’s body. She alleged that her daughter was strangulated to death by her-in-laws.

Phagwara DSP Jaspreet Singh, while confirming the arrests, said here today that three other unidentified persons were still absconding.

Notably, Sarabjit Kaur, mother of the deceased, has levelled allegations against her in-laws that the girl was beaten to death. She noticed injury marks on the neck and the back of her daughter’s body. She alleged that her daughter was strangulated to death by her in-laws.
