KILLER HAD PLANNED TO USE ‘SUPARI’ MONEY FOR HIS WEDDING
The lure of money, all ₹15 lakh of it, and a blissful, happy life after his wedding that is scheduled on October 14 (Sunday) blinded Gurwinder, 25, a diploma in computer hardware, to the perils of crime.
He has now ended up committing a crime as serious as a contract killing and has been nabbed.
Even after the murder, he had met his fiancé and told her that their good days were ahead as he was to get a lot of money.
His confidence stemmed from the fact that he had no direct link or relationship to the victim. He had been promised ₹5 lakh on the day of the murder and the rest of ₹10 lakh over a year.
His partner was not aware of his crime. It all started with a chance meeting at a social gathering with industrialist Balwinder, about six months ago.
Gurwinder happened to mention that his marriage was being scheduled and he did not even have enough money to feed lunch to guests.
This got Balwinder interested, who offered ₹15 lakh to Gurwinder, if he could do a special task for him.
“Finally, around four months ago, Balwinder called up Gurwinder and assigned him the task of killing Mandeep. He also gave him ₹20,000 to him for arranging a weapon,” the commissioner added.
“Gurwinder spent the money on his own needs, instead of buying a weapon. Balwinder also took him along to Ferozepur, where they procured six .32 bore bullets. He was also given training in handling the revolver here,” he added.
Gurwinder started following his victim around two months ago.
he mastermind, Balwinder, had hired another man, Aman, to keep a watch on Gurwinder and report to him as he had been delaying the final pulling of the trigger.
