Gurgaon: Man kills his own wife, business partner after being unable to repay loan
After being unable to repay a loan of Rs 40 lakh, a man identified as Harnek Singh murdered his business partner in Gurgaon. However, he later killed his own wife, Gurmehar Kaur after she backtracked on her promise to commit suicide together.
Notably, the accused Harnek Singh had taken a loan from Jaskaran Singh but despite repeated reminders, refused to pay him back. Jaskaran then landed at his business partner’s home in DLF Phase 2 on October 14. But Harnek, his wife Gurmehar Kaur and their friend tied him up and killed him.
According to Subhash Bokan, the public relations officer of Gurgaon Police, the accused along with his wife and friend killed Jaskaran and then chopped his body into 24 to 25 pieces. “They later stuffed it into two plastic bags and left for their hometown, Ludhiana. The accused kept throwing the body pieces at isolated places on the road en route Ludhiana,” he added.
Subhash Bokan further unveiled that after returning to Gurgaon, Harnek Singh realised that they would be caught eventually and convinced his wife to commit suicide together. “When she refused, Harnek Singh allegedly slit her throat on the night of October 22 and also inflicted injuries on himself to mislead the police,” he added.
The police spokesperson also said, “Harnek Singh then told the police that his house was robbed and robbers had killed Gurmehar Kaur.” “When asked why the robbers only injured him and murdered his wife, he failed to come up with a satisfactory response,” he noted.
Subhash Bokan said, “When Harnek was interrogated at length, he confessed to the murders.” “After being produced before a local court, Harnek Singh was sent to police custody for two days,” he concluded.
