The incident took place due to frequent disputes in the family. The officer said, citing preliminary enquiry of family members and neighbours.

Singh, around 65, was an alcoholic, and the father-son duo would frequently fight over familial discords. And on Wednesday too, they had a heated argument preceding the shootout, according to the officials.
