A man retired from the public works department (PWD) and his wife were hacked to death in Yamunanagar’s Sadhaura block on Tuesday, police said.
As per information, the murder took place in Bakala village under the Bilaspur subdivision, where the man, identified as Roshan Lal (in his 70s) and his wife Paramjit (around 55) were murdered separately in the evening.
Various police teams checked a grocery shop that the man used to run and where he was found dead along with their house where the woman was reportedly killed. The teams also searched a nearby pond, where the weapon(s) could have been dropped.
A local said that Roshan Lal had two sons, one of whom died in 2007 and the other lives near their house with his family.
SP Kamaldeep Goyal said that prima facie, it seems that a sharp-edged weapon was used to attack the couple.
“Our teams are questioning villagers and family members, but as of now, the reason behind the murder is not clear. Villagers have told us that the man had married the woman around nine months ago. His first wife had died several years ago,” Goyal added.
