Punjab Police ASI stabs brother, kills sister-in-law over water issue in Chandigarh

Murder victim Divya

Chandigarh, June 23

A Punjab Police ASI allegedly stabbed his sister-in-law to death and injured his brother following an altercation over the issue of water supply at Ram Darbar last night.

The suspect, Harswaroop, posted at the Police Headquarters, used to have arguments with his brother Prem Nath Sagar, staying on the first floor of the house, over the supply of water.

Prem used to complain that the water supply did not reach the first floor, which always led to arguments between him and Harswaroop.

The duo had an altercation again following which Harswaroop allegedly stabbed Prem with a knife. He also stabbed Prem’s wife Divya.

The police were informed and the injured couple was rushed to the Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32, where Divya succumbed to the injury while Prem’s condition is stated to be serious.

The police said Divya had a stab injury in the back below the shoulder, while Prem was stabbed several times.

The suspect was arrested and a murder case registered against him at the Sector 31 police station. The police said the knife used to stab the victims had been recovered. He was produced in a court and sent to judicial custody.
