Kaur and her husband Jagtar Singh, both residents of Phulewala village of Moga district, were allegedly kidnapped from Raikot, where the two had been living since their marriage about a year ago.
After kidnapping the young couple in a car, the accused murdered them in cold blood and later dumped their bodies in the canal on July 2, investigations carried out by the Raikot police, reveal.
When Jagtar`s family came to know that the couple had gone missing, they informed the Raikot police, who later launched a search and recovered the bodies on Saturday.
