Singh's son Praveen Kumar had a diploma in civil engineering but was unemployed. In May 2020, he came in contact with a woman named Asha Makkar and her husband Sunty. The couple told Kumar that they had good links with ministers and officers and could help him in getting a government job for his son.
The accused told Singh that they would require Rs 11 lakh for the job and added that Rs 6 lakh would be paid in advance, The Times of India reported. The accused told the man that his son would get a job by September 2020. The accused, however, failed to deliver on the promises and continued to delay till January 2021.
After the man did not get a job, Singh and his family members demanded the money back. The accused gave two cheques of Union Bank of India worth Rs 3 lakh and Rs 7.70 lakh but both of them were dishonoured. When the victims demanded the money again, the accused refused to return it and threatened to murder Singh.
