Slain dancer’s husband dies under mysterious circumstances

Bathinda:A month after Kulwinder Kaur, alias Janu, was shot dead while performing a dance item in a wedding at Maur Mandi in Bathinda district, her husband also died under mysterious circumstances on Wednesday morning.

The deceased identified as Harjinder Singh (25) used to work as sound technician in a DJ team at Bathinda. Harjinder hailed from Malout town.

Some unidentified persons rushed Harjinder to Civil Hospital Malout in the early morning, where the doctors declared him brought dead. Father of the deceased suspected his in-laws’ hand in the crime and lodged a complaint against them.

In his complaint, Sukhdev Singh (bereaved father) alleged that Harjinder and his mother-in-law Manjit Kaur Bholi were persuing legal case registered after Janu’s killing in the wedding. During the proceedings, Bholi started holding negotiations with the alleged killers and she also held a meeting with them once. “As Harjinder was against the compromise, I suspect Bholi’s role behind his mysterious death,” alleged the bereaved father of Harjinder.

The police, entertaining his complaint, launched inquest proceedings under Section 174 of the Cr PC but they opted to take action only after seeing the post mortem report, which was awaited.

It is pertinent to mention, two days after the murder of 22-year-old pregnant dancer, police had claimed to have arrested a total of three accused in the case with also showing the recovery of a .32 bore revolver and a .12 bore rifle from the accused.

Sanjay Goyal, owner of the gun that was used to kill the dancer, and his friend Lucky Goyal, who allegedly shot at the female dancer, were arrested from different locations. One Jagsir Singh, owner of the Ashirwad Palace, where the crime took place, was taken into custody immediately after the incident.

Two video footages of the incident were leaked after the incident which showed how the victim was shot at from close range and how the people there mercilessly dragged the woman from stage to rush to the hospital.
