Ludhiana, September 18
The police claimed to have successfully solved a double murder case by apprehending four suspects. The deceased, identified as Gulshan Gupta (23) from New Gagan Nagar and his friend Rahul Singh (24) from Maya Nagar, had been missing since September 16. Their bodies were recovered from a drain on Monday.
According to the police, the duo was brutally attacked with sharp weapons at a guest house near Hundal Chowk on Tajpur Road. Subsequently, their bodies were wrapped in blankets and discarded in a nearby drain.

According to the police, Rahul had engaged with a woman who had a friendship with suspect Amar Yadav. When Rahul came to know about the friendship between them through a social networking site, he confronted Amar and asked him to stay away from the woman.
