“The woman sustained grievous injuries on the arms and head."

A barbaric broad daylight attack saw a Punjabi woman hacked to death by a sword-wielding man.

The incident happened in Mohali. Not only did it happen in front of shocked onlookers but it was also captured on CCTV.

The victim was identified as Baljinder Kaur.

She was attacked by Sukhchain Singh, who was reportedly angered by the fact she had rejected his proposal.

Baljinder was a call centre worker who travelled 35 kilometres by bus to her workplace everyday.

Disturbing footage showed Baljinder walking with two friends to her workplace at around 8:30 am on June 8, 2024.

Singh – who was waiting by a tree – pulled out a sword and approached Baljinder.

He swung the sword at her, prompting her to run across the road in a bid to get to safety. Meanwhile, her friends ran away in terror.

As Singh chased her, he struck Baljinder several times across the arms.

She then fell to the floor and at that point, the scorned lover repeatedly slashed at her lifeless body.

Afterwards, Singh walked around with the bloodstained sword.

While many onlookers fled in fear, a lab technician named Maninder Singh and two Zomato workers pursued the attacker.

More people joined in to help and eventually caught the accused.

At around the same time, police arrived at the scene and detained Singh but not before he injured one officer.

After her body was taken to the hospital, a postmortem took place.

HS Cheema, Senior Medical Officer at Civil Hospital Mohali, said:

“The woman sustained grievous injuries on the arms and head.

“She suffered excessive blood loss before reaching the hospital and was declared brought dead. The cause of her death will be ascertained after postmortem.”

Police Superintendent Harbir Singh Atwal said:

“We received information about the attack around 8:45 am. We identified the accused and took him into custody within two hours.

“The CCTV footage is self-evident. We have rounded up the accused and the weapon used in the crime, along with his bag, has been recovered.”

Sukhchain Singh worked at a petrol station in Ludhiana and had known Baljinder for four years.

He was attracted to her but when he proposed to her, she rejected him.

Despite the rejection, Singh continued to stalk the Punjabi woman.

On the other hand, the accused’s family had a different account of the situation.

Singh’s mother said he was a kabaddi player but had not been playing due to an injury. She claimed he quit his job on June 1, 2024, and left home empty-handed on the morning of the murder.

She went on to say that her son and Baljinder were in a relationship and were planning to get married.

According to family members, the Punjabi woman was the sole breadwinner.

Her uncle said Baljinder recently sent her younger brother to Italy, hoping to secure a better future for him.

The uncle said: “We asked her to get married, but she said, ‘Let me settle down my younger brother and sister first’.”

Despite long hours at the call centre and the long commute between her home and her workplace, Baljinder would handle household chores and take care of the cattle.

A manager at her call centre said: “She was working with us for the past four years.

“The incident occurred during busy morning hours and there were quite a lot of people on the road, but no one intervened to stop the accused.”
