His wife had gone to her parent's house a few days ago.

In the firing incident, the 10-year-old daughter of his brother-in-law also sustained injuries, police said.

Later, he surrendered before police and deposited his AK 47 service rifle, which he had got released on Saturday evening from police lines as he had to proceed on official duty.

The accused was subsequently arrested and a case registered against him under relevant provisions of law, police said.

The dead were identified as Singh's wife Rajwinder Kaur (45), mother-in-law Satwinder Kaur (65), brother-in-law Jaskarn Singh (40) and sister-in-law Upinderjeet Kaur (32).
