Ludhiana, August 2
The police have booked Shubham and his wife Kavita Rani, both residents of Gill Colony, under Sections 323, 324, 341 and 354 of the IPC for alleged assault on Sonu Verma, mother of the former, after the victim intervened in a marital dispute between the couple.
In a complaint to the police, Pooja, daughter of the victim, said Shubham and his wife were quarreling over some domestic matter when her mother told them to leave the place and settle the issue in their room.
She said the couple went out the next morning. They returned in the evening and bolted the door from inside and beat up her mother. The accused also took away two gold earrings, a gold ring, some silver jewellery and Rs 50,000 with them.
In another incident of assault, the police have booked three persons, identified as Laadi, Jaggi, Pala Singh, all residents of Lohara, and their two unidentified accomplices under various sections of the IPC on the complaint of Parminder Singh, a resident of Sukhdev Nagar.
The complainant said the accused came to his workshop at Daba on the evening of July 31 and attacked him with an iron rod and a sword. He said the reason behind the attack was a police complaint lodged by him against the accused for a theft which had occurred at his workshop a day before. — OC
