Chandigarh, April 8 (IANS) A Punjab Police head constable Tuesday shot dead his wife and 18-year-old son before turning his licensed 12-bore rifle on himself in Mohali district, police said. The police found the bodies of head constable Bhupinder Singh and his wife Jaswinder Kaur in a pool of blood inside the house in Kharar town of Mohali, 20 km from here. Their son Robin was lying injured.
Robin was alive when police took him to the civil hospital in Kharar from where he was referred to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here. He succumbed to the injuries on the way.
Though no suicide note was found, neighbours and friends had different versions about the possible reason for the step.
While neighbours said Singh suspected his wife of an extra-marital affair, his friends said the constable’s wife kept suspecting him of illicit relations with other women.
Singh was in his 50s. His son was pursuing a mechanical engineering course in Chandigarh.
Neighbours said Robin called up one of them immediately after being shot by his father seeking help.
