Kapurthala, Sept 26: In a gruesome incident, an NRI allegedly killed his wife and four-year-old son with sharp edged weapon in their house at village Sunarwal, under sadar police station here, over a family dispute, police said today.

The deceased have been identified as 28-year-old Rajwinder Kaur and her son Tejdeep, Superintendent of Police (SP) Jagjit Singh Saroya said.
