Balkar had gone to buy eatables in the nearby market for his relatives who were coming from England. A group of armed persons alighted from three cars and chased him. They opened fire at him, killing him on the spot.
Jaimal Singh, a brother of Balkar, said the armed members of the family then reached their house. They parked their vehicles a few metres away from the house. On spotting Ravinder, who was sitting on the terrace at that time, they fired at her. When she tried to escape by jumping from the terrace, they caught hold of her and shot her into the head.
