Repeatedly denied cash to start a new company, a thirty-five-year-old man beat his father to death in Guru Nanak Nagar on Tuesday night.
SHO Civil Lines police station Mukhtiar Singh stated that the deceased Avtar Singh, resident of Guru Nanak Nagar, had borrowed Rs 3 lakh after mortgaging his store. His son Tajinder Singh was demanding money from him to begin a new business venture but Avtar Singh didn’t relent.
On Tuesday evening, following a verbal spat between Avtar and Tajinder, the latter brutally thrashed his daddy. Afterwards, Tajinder himself took Avtar into the hospital where the physician declared him brought dead.
Taking a look at the injury marks on the deceased, the physician informed the authorities, but Tajinder took his father’s body in his car saying he was going to Gurdaspur for additional treatment. But near Babri, the car met with an accident and Tajinder fled the place leaving his father’s body in the car.
