Nathana station house officer (SHO) Sandeep Singh said the accused have been identified as Beant Kaur’s brother Balkaran Singh, uncle Hansa Singh and cousin Kirpal Singh.

Balkaran, a registered medical practitioner, and Kirpal were arrested while efforts were on to nab Hansa Singh, police said.

The couple had solemnised a court marriage four years ago and Jagmeet did not have cordial relations with Beant’s family as they had disapproved of the matrimonial relationship with a resident of the same village.

“Beant was living with her parents for almost a year because of family’s pressure. When Jagmeet, who stayed in Bathinda city, went to meet Beant on Sunday, he was attacked by the three accused using sharp-edged agricultural implements. When Beant intervened, the accused attacked her as well. Both died on the spot,” the SHO said.
