JA­LAND­HAR : With the ar­rest of three per­sons, po­lice on Wed­nes­day claimed to have cracked the case in­volv­ing the mur­der of a lo­cal dera head at Nawan­pind Shaukian vil­lage in Ja­land­har dis­trict in July last year.

Those ar­rested are Bhupin­der Singh alias Bhinda (23) of Sanghe Khalsa vil­lage, Deepa (23) and Man­deep Ku­mar (18) of Nat vil­lage. Two more ac­cused — Des Raj (25), who is presently in Malaysia and Rinku (24) of Nat vil­lage — are at large, po­lice said.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence, se­nior su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice (SSP) Navjot Singh Ma­hal said Mo­hin­der Pal (55) was griev­ously in­jured in an at­tack by some uniden­ti­fied per­sons on July 15, 2019.

A case un­der Sec­tions 307 (at­tempt to mur­der), 324and 323 of the In­dian Pe­nal Code was regis­tered against uniden­ti­fied per­sons.

Pal died four days later. Section 302 (mur­der) of the IPC was added to the FIR.

The SSP said dur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion Bhupin­der re­vealed that he at­tacked the vic­tim along with his aides to avenge his fa­ther’s death as Mo­hin­der Pal had con­ducted some black magic near their house.

The rest of the ac­cused will be ar­rested soon, the SSP said.
