As per the complaint made by Harman Kaur Upkar Singh with the police, the deceased identified as Upkar Singh (57) a retired manger from a petroleum company, had befriended the accused Amit Singh few years back and the duo were staying together in Kalamboli.

The deceased and his wife had been staying separately since 2001 and visited each other occasionally. The deceased had taken a VRS in the year 2020 and continued staying in Kalamboli with the friend.

Last year, in the month of November, the accused friend contacted the wife who was in Goa, informing about the deteriorating health condition of her husband.

The following day, the wife visited the bank to close the account held by her husband and she learnt that two hours after her husband’s death, Rs 30 lakh was transferred into the accused friend’s account.
