It seems like the crime rate in Chandigarh is increasing on a day to day basis. In yet another incident, that happened in Sector 21 of Chandigarh, three family members including an elderly couple were given poisonous substance in their food by a home servant. The motive behind adding drugs in the food of the owners was to steal valuable things from the home.
About the Incident
The victims who were drugged by the servant have been identified as KS Kang, Satinder Kaur (KS Kang’s wife) and Manpreet (daughter-in-law). They are the relatives of Mohali DC.
The servant has been identified as Ram Bahadur.
The SHO of Sector 19 police station said that Ginni Mangat (Kang’s Daughter) is married to DS Mangat and stays in sector 33 Chandigarh. Ginni called her mother at around 9:30 pm and said that Manpreet was not taking the call. Satinder told Ginni that everyone was feeling dizzy and had slept. After some time, Ginni again called and no one answered the calls. Ginni rushed to her parent’s house in Sector 21 and saw that all the doors were locked from inside except one.
