Amritsar, May 22

A dispute over paying the bill of a restaurant among friends turned ugly when more than 12 persons fired gunshots at a house on Thursday night.

The police said Karandeep Singh Bawa and Vishal were old friends and before the lockdown, they had spent Rs5,000 in a restaurant in Ranjit Avenue. Vishal reportedly paid Rs1,200 for Karandeep and now, he wanted to get his money back.

Police officials said on Thursday night, they had a verbal duel over phone and Karandeep refused to return the money. Vishal, along with more than 10 persons, reached outside the house of Karandeep and dared him to come out. Thereafter, they fired several gunshots.

After getting information, the police reached the spot and initiated investigation. Vishal and one of his accomplices have been arrested. The police have also nominated Antarpreet and Tejbir Singh, who are reportedly sons of a police officer, in the case. A car and a rifle were recovered from Vishal.

Gurwinder Singh, SHO, B-Division, said, “We are analysing CCTV footage. Two persons have been arrested and a hunt has been launched to arrest other 10 persons.”
