Hardeep Singh (30) of Chhiddan village was shot dead by armed persons here on Saturday. A dispute over property is stated to be the reason.
Karam Singh, his father, said accused Nirvail Singh used to forcibly pass through their land. He said this had led to a quarrel a few days ago. He said on Saturday the accused and several armed persons barged into his house and started quarrelling while abusing them.
He said hearing the noise, his son Hardeep came out. On seeing him, they shot at him leaving him critically injured. He was rushed to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead.
Gurpartap Singh Sahota, DSP Attari, said Nirvail shot at his son with his 12 bore double barrel gun.
Manjit Singh, brother of the deceased, also fired gun shots. He told the police that he fired shot in self-defence after the armed assailants led by Nirvail attacked them.
Besides Nirvail, the police have booked Paramjit Singh, Parvej Singh, Robinpreet Singh, Jobanpreet Singh, Gurdeep Singh, Sarabjit Singh, Sajjan Singh and two unknown persons. They were booked for murder and under the Arms Act.
