MOHALI Police today arrested Amarjit Singh alias Sweety who had allegedly killed Harpreet Singh, a seventeen-year-old boy of Phase X, Mohali, with a sharp-edged weapon in Phase IIIB-2. Amarjit Singh was today arrested at the Ropar Bus Stand where he was trying to leave the city on a bus.

Amarjit Singh had allegedly stabbed Harpreet Singh eight times in a drunken brawl on the night of March 22 in the parking outside a lodge in Phase III-B2 of Mohali where the two along with Jagir Singh (father of Harpreet Singh) had been reportedly drinking whisky.

Mohali SP Varinderpal Singh while talking to Newsline said that during the investigation the police found that Amarjit was an NRI and had been deported from USA on August 2004 after committing some major offence.

He was living from hand to mouth and took a room on rent in Phase-II some eight months back where Harpreet’s father Jagir singh ran a food joint.

Amarjit used to take meals or call Jagir or Harpreet for home delivery and developed contacts with the two.

According to SP Mohali Amarjit Singh’s mother came back from USA and took him to Sangatpura village in Phagwara to hand him the land owned by the family. She transferred the family land in Amarjit’s name and went back to USA.

With the increase of the price of land, Amarjit sold some of his land and started living lavishly. He also bought two expensive cars.

In Mohali he had contacts only with the Jagir’s family and he often used to visit them.

SP Mohali said that there were already three FIR’s of quarrelling against Amarjit in Ludhiana, Phagwara and Jalandhar as he had a tendency to get violent after getting drunk.

On March 22, Amarjit was in Chandigarh where his car met with an accident and he was arrested by the Chandigarh Police in Sector 36.

He called up Harpreet who took his father with him and the matter was settled with a compromise and no case was registered then. The SP said that Amarjit would be produced in the court tomorrow.
