Youth stabbed to death by father’s friend

A 17-YEAR-OLD youth of Phase X was allegedly murdered last night by his father’s friend. The youth’s father was reportedly present at the scene when his son was stabbed.

According to reports, the incident was the result of a drunken brawl between the trio. The victim has been identified as Harpreet Singh, son of Jagir Singh. The accused is Amarjit Singh, a Non-Resident Indian (NRI).

Speaking to Newsline, Jagir said he had gone to the police station in Sector 36 yesterday after his friend, Amarjit, was arrested in an accident case. After a compromise between the two parties, Amarjit and Jagir went to the latter’s shop in Phase-II, from where they picked up Harpreet. The trio then bought whisky and went to Asian Lodge in Phase-III B-2, where they started drinking.

‘‘At about 12:30 am, the two (Amarjit and Jagir) started talking loudly to each other. They both went downstairs to settle the matter. I stayed back in the room. When they did not return after a long time, I went to check what had happened. I was shocked to see that Amarjit was attacking my son with a sharp-edged knife,’’ alleged Jagir.

‘‘He stabbed Harpreet twice in his stomach, and my son ran for his life. I, too, raised an alarm and ran after Amarjit to stop him. But by then he had stabbed Harpreet in his chest, head, mouth and stomach eight times. My son fell on the road and Amarjit ran to his car to escape,’’ said Jagir.

Two constables from the Police Control Room reached the spot and tried to stop Amarjit, but the latter escaped. Harpreet was taken to Chawla Nursing Home, but the doctors there refused to admit him.

‘‘I then took him to Fortis Hospital in Phase VIII, where the doctors tried desperately to save Harpreet. But he was declared dead at 3 am this morning,’’ said a tearful Jagir.

When contacted, SP, Mohali, Varinder Pal Singh, said out of the eight wounds, six proved fatal for Harpreet. He added that they had information about Amarjit’s residence in Jalandhar and police teams had been sent to nab him. He informed that the police had information about Amarjit’s criminal background and his deportation from the US.
