A BSF jawan who was in a relationship with his first cousin was stabbed to death at Jogi Cheema village, near here, late last night.

Sharanjit Kumar (25) had an affair with his maternal aunt’s daughter, to which her brother Kuldeep Kumar had objected.

On Thursday night, the girl went to Sharanjit’s residence. Kuldeep followed her and a quarrel ensued, which later turned violent.

Girl’s uncle Prem Pal, too, reached the house with a knife. Kuldeep and Prem Pal allegedly stabbed Sharanjit, killing him on the spot.

SSP Rajinder Singh Sohal said a team from the Tibber police station reached the spot within an hour. “A manhunt has been launched to nab the accused. A case under Section 302 (murder) has been registered at the Tibber police station. We have identified some hideouts of the accused and hope to arrest them by tomorrow morning,” he said.
