Chandigarh: In a suspected case of honour
killing, a man allegedly shot dead his daughter and her lover
after he found them together at Chandpurana village in
Punjab`s Moga district today, police said.

Lovepreet Kaur (17) and Harjinder Singh (22) were shot
by the girl`s father when the youth had gone to meet her at
her house, Baghapurana police station`s SHO Pratap Singh said.

The girl`s father, seething with anger on seeing his
daughter meeting the youth, opened fire on both of them with
his gun, the officer said.

Harjinder`s brother, who was waiting outside, came to
his brother`s rescue, but he also sustained a bullet injury.

The victims, who were in a relationship for the past
several months, had been regularly seeing each other.
Efforts were on to nab the accused who was absconding,
the SHO said, adding a case has been registered under various
sections of the IPC.
