Kapurthala: A migrant labourer was beaten to death allegedly by three workers of a dera here for passing through the pious area in an "inebriated" state, police said today.

Hari Ram (20), hailing from Sant Kabir Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh, took a shorter route to his room on Saturday through the dera at village Kot Krar Khan.

As he was passing through the dera, its workers stopped him alleging that he was in an inebriated state and could not pass through the pious place. An argument ensued after which the workers allegedly beat Hari Ram to death, police said.

Hari Ram was working in a poultry farm.

A murder case has been registered against three 'sevadars' of the dera, police said.

When contacted, a dera leader denied any comment saying police were investigating the matter.
