Kulwant’s nephew told Police that the couple was going through some relationship issues for the past one month and used to fight frequently over the same.
The younger son said, “My parents used to fight regularly, but we never imagined that something like this would happen.I left the house at around 10 a.m.to play at a friend’s place and came back to find them dead.I informed my aunt, who called up the Police.”
