An NRI, Sadhu Singh, who had come to his native village, Gangian, over a month ago, to take along his second wife to Canada, was killed here today in broad daylight near his house.

Police have registered a case against the accused-- Daljit Singh, alias Jita, of Bajwa village who is absconding-- under sections 302 and 307 of the IPC.

Today morning, Nirvair Singh of Bhana village went to meet Sadhu Singh, 65, at his residence, which is at a distance from the village, for some domestic work.

Sources said when Nirvair found that Sadhu was not at home, he started for his house, and on the way he saw Sadhu's scooter lying in a field and nearby he saw Daljit Singh, who runs a tea stall on Dasuya-Hoshiarpur road, sitting on his back and trying to strangulate him with a rope.

When Nirvair asked Daljit what he was doing, he asked him to help him lift Sadhu, who had fallen because of heavy session of drinking.

"But Nirvair smelled something fishy and ran towards the house of Sadhu to inform his wife, but Daljit followed him and attacked him from behind with an iron road and a knife," said the police.

Nirvair ran towards the main road and Daljit followed him, but on seeing commuters, he ran away. People informed police and Nirvair was admitted to the Civil Hospital from where he was referred to DMC, Ludhiana, the police said.

SHO Manjit Singh said the police were investigating the case.
