Harbhajan was upset that his younger brother had more money and property. Five persons have been arrested. The shocking incident took place in Korba district in Chhattisgarh.
Dhan Kunwar had planned it and her husband was part of the conspiracy. The hired killers tried a similar attack on April 18 but couldn't succeed then.
