Senior journalist KJ Singh and his mother Gurcharan Kaur were found murdered at their house in the heart of Mohali on Saturday afternoon.
Mohali senior superintendent police Kuldeep Chahal confirmed the double murder in Phase 3B2 and said the motive was being investigated.
Police said KJ Singh was first stabbed in the stomach as he opened the door to the assailant. The trail of blood led to the room where he was found dead. After that his throat was slit.

His mother, Gurcharan Kaur, who was bedridden, was strangulated to death.
Singh, a bachelor, was a former news editor of the Indian Express, The Times of India and The Tribune in Chandigarh.
The murder came to light around 1pm when KJ Singh’s sister Yashpal Kaur and her son, Ajay Pal, a staffer with The Times of India, came with lunch for the two. They found the main door with blood stains bolted from outside.
The police said Singh’s part-time house help, Rekha, rang the bell at 9am as usual but returned from the gate when no one answered it. She came back an hour later but left without entering the house.
Singh’s green Ford Ikon car and an LED TV are missing.
