The incident took place at 9:30 in the late evening when the three accused came to Pritpal’s house on a motorcycle and asked him to accompany them.

When Pritpal’s family members heard the noise they went out to find Pritpal lying on the ground and bleeding heavily.
According to the family of Pritpal, the possible reason behind the incident is an old enmity. All the accused were Pritpal’s classmates. All of them had passed class XIIth exams some months ago this year. The police immediately reached the spot to investigate the crime.
