An NRI burnt himself, his wife and their two children alive at their house in Kalasingia village of Punjab, over a sleazy video. The husband was upset over his wife’s alleged extramarital relation.
The incident reportedly occurred after 35-year-old Kulwinder Singh got to know about the illicit relations of his wife from the villagers.
He came to his native village Kalasingia last night and poured petrol on himself, his wife and their two minor children and set everyone on fire, police said.
Singh, along with his two children Abhi (5) and Sonal (8) died on the spot while his wife received more than 80 per cent burn injuries.
She was rushed to a hospital where she died. Kulwinder’s sister Jaswinder Kaur, who was sleeping in the adjoining room, came to know about the incident after hearing the screams of the victims and raised alarm. “She also sustained minor burn injuries and was discharged after the first aid,” MS Bawa, medical superintendent, Jalandhar civil hospital, said.
According to Superintendent of police (SP) Jagjit Singh Saroya, Kulwinder came to know about his wife’s affair when she told him that a man was threatening to post her obscene video on social media and demanding sexual favours,”
He then poured kerosene on his wife and children at night and set them on fire.
Police have registered a criminal case against four people belonging to the same village for making the video around three months ago.
The accused blackmailed the woman and later sent the video to her husband. They were identified as Balkar Singh, Gurpreet Singh alias Sunny, Satya Devi and Tirath Singh.
“When I talked to my husband about this, he got furious. Later, when we were sleeping he poured kerosene on us and set us on fire,” she told the police.
DSP Sarabjit Singh said on the basis of the woman’s statement, a case has been registered against four persons belonging to the same village under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide) and 34 of IPC.
