Hoshiarpur, March 16 (IANS) Having arrived in Punjab this month for his son’s wedding, a 60-year-old Canada-based non-resident Indian (NRI) is on the run after murdering his wife here, police said Wednesday.
Gurdial Singh allegedly killed Ranjit Kaur, 55, at their village Rahpur, some 15 km from Hoshiarpur town, after a heated argument.
Police said Gurdial Singh, who hailed from Calgary town in Canada, slit his wife’s throat with a sharp weapon Tuesday night. The scuffle left their elder son, Kamaljit, injured.
The couple and their sons reached Punjab March 1 for the wedding of their younger son Gurvinder. The marriage took place March 11. The couple clashed as Gurdial Singh did not invite his in-laws for the wedding.
Family members told police that Kamaljit had lived in Canada for over seven years. His parents and other family members migrated to Canada last year.
