Jalandhar triple murder: Police held businessman, paramour

In the Jalandhar triple murder case, police on Friday arrested the son of the prominent city-based businessman in whose house the killings took place.

The killing incident took place at the residence of renowned industrialist Jagjit Singh Loomba in Lajpat Nagar in which his wife Daljit Kaur, daughter-in-law Paramjit Kaur and her friend Khushwinder were found shot dead.

According to a report in Indian Express

, police arrested Jagjit’s son Amarinder Singh and his accountant Tejinder Kaur aka Ruby with whom he was allegedly having illicit relations, on charges of murder and hatching a criminal conspiracy.

The report said Amarinder wanted to get rid of his wife Paramjit Kaur. So, Amarinder and Ruby hired contract killers for Rs 8 lakh and gave them Rs 1.04 lakh in advance.

The contract killers have been identified as Vipan (Amarinder’s employee) and Amrit Singh, residents of Chabbewal in Hoshiarpur district. Both are absconding.

In police interrogation, Amarinder and Ruby said that their target was only Paramjit Kaur, but the assailants also killed Daljit and Khushwinder. Khushwinder, who had come to visit Paramjit at the time of the incident, is survived by her husband and two children.
