An Armyman from Punjab’s Ludhiana who had come home on leave was hacked to death late Wednesday night following an argument at a party, the police said. Hours later, three people, including a woman and her two sons, were arrested.
Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Suhail Qasim Mir said that Malkit Singh of Ludhiana’s Akalgarh village was serving as a constable in the Army. Malkit was deployed with the 10 Sikh Li Regiment in Uttar Pradesh and had come home on leave on October 31.
Malkit’s wife Amandeep Kaur said in her statement to the police that she along with her husband, daughter, and in-laws went to Phullanwal 1 village to attend a pre-wedding party of their relative. She added that during the ceremony, the accused, Balvir Singh alias Rinku, his brother Abhi Sandhu alias Amit, and their mother Harjinder Kaur, were also present. The accused were neighbours of their relative.
“When we were dancing, the accused Balvir and Abhi, who were under the influence of alcohol, started misbehaving. After we objected, they started threatening my husband. Later, when I along with my husband went out of the venue to attend a phone call, the accused also turned up with sharp-edged weapons and attacked my husband. They stabbed him multiple times,” she said.
