Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Punjab & Haryana - HT Cor­re­spon­dent

A woman and her fouryear-old son were found mur­dered at their home in Am­bala, po­lice said Fri­day.

The bod­ies of Nir­mal, 50, and her son Di­nesh, 4, were re­cov­ered from the kitchen on Thurs­day night, po­lice said.

There were in­jury marks on the bod­ies, ap­par­ently made from sharp-edged weapons, the po­lice said.

Nir­mal’s hus­band Surinder Ku­mar Sachdeva, who is a cloth mer­chant, was out on a busi­ness trip to Nan­gal on Thurs­day. When he re­turned late at night, he found both of them dead in the kitchen of their house in the Ram Nagar colony.

Sachdeva in­formed his brother, who also lives nearby.

Deputy su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice Ajit Ku­mar said a team has been con­sti­tuted to in­ves­ti­gate the crime. Foren­sic ex­perts and a dog squad have vis­ited the spot and the bod­ies were sent for post-mortem.

He said that it does not ap­pear that the crime has been com­mit­ted with the in­ten­tion of loot.

The vic­tim sus­pected to have been at­tacked when she was pre­par­ing meals in the kitchen and the child was play­ing nearby, he said.

A case has been reg­is­tered against uniden­ti­fied as­sailants and in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on, the DSP said.
