Two found murdered in Jalandhar

JALANDHAR: Two persons were found murdered here at different places. Unidentified persons entered the house of Daljit Singh (53) at Dhirpur village on Saturday night and killed him.

Daljit?s son Ranjit Singh told the police that he and his mother were forced into a room by two persons and their mobile phones were taken away and they were locked inside. He said that the assailants had come around 10.30pm on Saturday and they left around 2.30am while leaving their phones behind.

He said that when they reached the lobby of their house, where his father was sleeping, they found him lying murdered. They informed the neighbours and police. Ranjit and his mother claimed that the deceased did not have any animosity with anybody. However, police officials said that it sounded bizarre that the assailants stayed at the house for a few hours and still they did not take away anything.

In the second case Atul Rajput, alias Vimal (35), a resident of Makhdoompura who worked as a financier, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in his car at Bidhipur road . Police said there were strangulation marks around Atul?s neck but the exact cause of death was yet to be ascertained.
