The Amritsar rural police have booked a couple for attempt to murder.
According to information, Ranjit Singh, a resident of Mohan Bhandaria village, had allegedly solemnised second marriage without divorcing his first wife Kulwinder Kaur. He allegedly opened fire at Kulwinder when she along with her two relatives questioned him. One of them, identified as Upkar Singh of Ramdas, sustained splinter injuries. The incident occurred at Kariyala village on Saturday night.
The police have registered a case under Sections 307 and 34 of the IPC and 25, 27, 54, 59 under the Arms Act against Ranjit Singh and his “second wife” Gurpinder Kaur.
Upkar said Ranjit was married to Kulwinder Kaur around seven years ago. But the couple had a dispute over some issue for the past two years. “Kulwinder came to know recently that Ranjit had married another woman and the couple was living in Kariyala village. Kulwinder took me and Hardip Singh Talwandi Nahar village to Kariyala village to question him about this,” Upkar said.
He said when they reached there, Ranjit and Gurpinder met them outside their residence. A verbal duel took place and the accused went inside his house and came out all of a sudden and fired several rounds at him. He said that he suffered splinter injuries on his face and chest. He said Hardip and Kulwinder escaped as they ran away from the spot. The accused fled the scene and he was taken to a hospital.
Charan Singh, investigating officer, said raids were being conducted to nab the accused.
