Sangrur, Aug 23 (UNI) Unidentified assailants today killed two middle-aged Bihari migrant labourer women and seriously injured a man in Mohamaddin Basti in Malerkotla town in this district.
While Bina Rani, 40, wife of Lalu and Rinku Devi, 35, wife of Vijay Kumar, were found dead in their separate rooms, Rajesh Kumar who was sleeping outside was found bleeding profusely due to the wound inflicted upon his neck with sharp-edged weapons.
DSP Gurpreet Singh told reporters here that four families had rented one-room each in the house, where they had been living for about a year. All the three victims belonged to different families, he said adding that prima facie the case seemed of illicit relationship.
The injured Rajesh Kumar, who has been admitted in civil hospital Malerkotla in serious condition, holds the key to the identity of the attackers, Mr Singh.
Police had registered a case under section 302 of IPC against unknown persons and was interrogating many people, including neighbours, he said.
