Lawyer fired at, escapes unhurt

Mohali, May 26  

An advocate working in the judicial court complex in Sector 76 was fired at by assailants here today. He escaped unhurt. Advocate Harkishan Singh, a resident of Phase V, was allegedly attacked when he was going on an Activa scooter towards the court complex. The incident took place near the boundary wall of the Radha Soami Satsang around 10.15 am. Harkishan Singh told Chandigarh Tribune that he had a miraculous escape. He said  three or four persons, who had their faces covered, followed him in a white Swift car when he was going towards the court complex.

First  they attacked him with a metal rod, which struck his scooter. Then the attackers allegedly fired two shots from a pistol. The shots, however, did not hit him. He said two empty shells of a .38 pistol were recovered by the police from the scene. He said he made a complaint at the police station and later met the DSP concerned.

A case under Section 307 of the IPC was registered against unidentified persons, he added. He said he told the police that he had no enmity with anyone, but suspected the role of a relative in the attack. He said last year, shots were fired at a door of the house of his in-laws, who lived in Babnara village, near Kurali. However, no empty shells were found at the scene at that time. — OC
