Badiala (Bathinda), July 16

In a suspected case of honour killing, a Dalit youth of Badiala village of the district was murdered allegedly by about a dozen co-villagers with the aim to teach him a lesson for having an affair with a Jat Sikh girl.

According to information, Gurjant Singh was kidnapped and murdered on the night of July 13 allegedly by the girl’s father, Makhan Singh, and his 11 associates. However, the victim’s body was recovered today from near the Dhipali distributary.

Gurjant, as per sources, had a relation with the girl for the last several years. And both continued to meet each other even though the girl was “forcibly” married off in Dhilwan village.

Though the police authorities refused to divulge details relating to the murder, the duo, it has been learnt, were planning to tie the nuptial knot. However, Makhan Singh, his brothers and other relatives got to know about their plans.

Sources said Makhan Singh and his accomplices allegedly threw Gurjant’s body into the Dhipali distributary with the aim to destroy evidence. A case has been registered at Rampura Phul police station.
