According to Station House Officer Police Station Sarai Amant Khan, Kiranjit Singh, the relatives of the woman intercepted the couple in the middle of the road when they were on a motorcycle.

The woman's relatives then allegedly shot them dead and thereafter they fled from the spot, he said.

Police said Amanpreet Kaur, 23, married Amandeep Singh, 24, of the same village four months ago against the wishes of the woman's family.
