According to the police, the man identified as Ramswarup Bishnoi was a farmer while his son Saurav was an undergraduate student in the local government college in Goluwala.

“They have a property in Goluawala’s Rohi village, which Ramswarup had been planning to sell for a long time, but Saurav intervened and asked him to buy another property first before selling it. However, the long-time dispute ended up in such a violent way last night,” he said.

The police said there are three other members in the family, including Ramswarup’s mother and wife and an elder son.

“Following the incident, the neighbours, including Ramswarup’s brother, who lives in the vicinity, arrived at the scene and reported the matter to the police,” said SHO Giridhar.

The bodies were sent for an autopsy, police said. “We are also probing how did the man get an arms weapon. Further investigation is underway,” the SHO added.
