The complaint read that Kuldeep Singh’s youngest son, Pradeep Singh had dropped out of school after class VIII and had started working in the fields. He had stated Jagdish Kumar, one of the convicts, suspected that Pradeep had an affair with his daughter. Jagdish even threatened Kuldeep, a PS Sadar resident in Ludhiana, of dire consequences if he is unable to rein in his son.
