In another brutal attack on journalist, Senior journalist from Punjab, KJ Singh and his mother were found murdered at their house in Mohali on Saturday. The house was found ransacked.  Singh was in his late sixties while his mother was over 90.

Singh had retired as Chief News Editor of ‘The Tribune’, Chandigarh, after serving on the Chandigarh editions of ‘The Indian Express’ and ‘The Times of India’.

Preliminary reports say Singh’s throat was found slit while his mother Gurcharan Kaur was strangled, suggesting resistance by the victim.

According to Tribune, the bodies were found lying in a pool of blood when the police were called by the neighbours.

Their maid was the first to notice the murder and sounded the neighbours, who called the police.
