The Hush Post: A man allegedly beat his 90-year-old father to death over property dispute in a Moga village. The incident came to light after the daughter of the accused, Sewak Singh,50, told the villagers about the incident.
The police said the father, Kirpal Singh, and son Sewak Singh, 50, had a quarrel over Sewak Singh wanting to sell their 10-marla house, but his father opposed the decision.
A verbal spat between the two turned ugly on Monday night when Sewak started beating his father who succumbed to injuries, the police said. Sewak’s elder daughter witnessed the episode but he threatened his daughter to remain silent.
“Sewak told the villagers that his father passed away. But his daughter informed them what actually had transpired,” said a police official.
By the time people got to know of the incident, Sewak had already fled from his village in Gholia Khurd in Nihal Singh Wala subdivision of Moga district. The accused is absconding. A case has been registered.
