The dispute arose after Hardip gave Rs 9 lakh to the travel agent, Gurnam Singh, for sending him abroad, Gurdaspur sub-inspector Vijay Kumar said.
When he failed to honour its promise, Hardip and his wife decided to lodge a police complaint.
On May 13, Hardip and his wife were going to a police station to lodge a complaint. They stopped at a shop to recharge a mobile phone.There Gurnam’s family members suddenly appeared and they started thrashing Hardip and Kulwinder.
Police registered case has been registered against 11 persons, including Gurnam, under relevant sections of the IPC, the police said. However, the family of travel agent was absconding, the police said.
Hawaldar Kulwant Singh was among the seven security personnel who lost their lives when four terrorists sneaked in from across the border and attacked the Pathankot air base on the intervening night of January 1 and 2 last year.
Kulwant was a resident of the Chak Sharif village in Gurdaspur.
