Rajbir and Santosh lived in the house on the ground floor while their sons lived on the top three floors. Rajbir was earlier working in DTC, but after he got into a dispute with DTC, the case started running.
During this, he started selling vegetables by roaming along with his wife and younger son Praveen. Rajbir used to get up early every morning to get vegetables with Praveen. In the early hours of Tuesday, Praveen’s father came to pick up Mandi for walking, but the father did not open the door. After a long delay, at around seven o’clock, Praveen informed the parents of the elder brothers about not opening the door.

For two months, Santosh Devi had gone to the village located in Nawali.

After this, he had brought his wife from the village three days ago. After coming here, husband and wife and Praveen started selling vegetables. Ravish told that everything was normal. On Monday night, all three had come back after selling vegetables at around 8.30. Everyone ate dinner together and went to sleep. The murder was discovered in the morning. The sons do not understand why Rajbir took such a step.
After the incident, the sensation spread in the whole area…
