Gurdaspur: Unidentified assailants hacked a 50-year-old woman and her teenaged son to death at their house in Fatehgarh Churian town in the district today, police said.
According to Deputy Superintendent of Police Tilak Raj, one Malkiat Kaur (50) and her son Lovepreet Singh (17) were found murdered at their house in Baghwali Gali in Ward No.10.
The two victims were found with their throats slit by sharp weapons, Raj said, adding that the assailants had decamped with jewellery and cash from the house. Lovepreet was a student in Plus-II.
