Panic gripped Kot Atmaram, which falls under the jurisdiction of Division B police station, after several persons started indiscriminate firing outside a cosmetic shop on Sunday evening.

Complainant Harpreet Kaur Kairon told the police that around 7.30 pm on Sunday three youngsters entered her shop in an inebriated condition (youth came to attend a marriage ceremony in the neighbourhood). She said the accused demanded a face cream and she asked them to visit another shop.

She alleged the accused entered into an argument with her and used foul language. She said as her relatives tried to push them out of the shop, the accused started firing indiscriminately. The incident was captured on CCTV camera.

SHO Division B police station Gurwinder Singh said they marked the probe. One of the accused was stated to be relative of a cop.
