A man allegedly beat his 90-year-old father to death over property dispute at Gholia Khurd in Nihal Singh Wala subdivision of Moga, Punjab. The victim has been identified as Kirpal Singh.
Police said the two quarreled as Sewak wanted to sell a 10-marla house with Kirpal opposing his decision.
When Sewak approached Kirpal for selling the house on Monday, verbal spat between the two turned ugly. Sewak started beating his father who succumbed to injuries.
Sewak’s elder daughter witnessed the episode but he threatened his sister to remain silent.
“Sewak told the villagers that his father passed away. But his daughter informed them what actually had transpired,” said a police official.
SHO Dilbag Singh said, “We have formed a team to arrest the accused who is absconding.”
“We have handed over the body to the family after conducting post-mortem on it,” the SHO added.
