Bathinda, July 7
A gangster-turned-social worker, Kulbir Naruana (39), was on Wednesday morning shot dead allegedly by his personal gunman Mandeep Singh Manna at his house in Naruana village here. Another person died after being hit by a car while two others were injured.
The gunman had come to meet Naruana at his residence in the morning and told him to sit in his car as he wanted to speak with him.
After Naruana entered his car, Manna opened fire and shot him dead.
After shooting Naruana, Manna tried to flee from the spot, but was stopped by people around. Manna then opened fire at Gurpreet Singh, who is undergoing treatment at a private hospital and his condition is stated to be critical, and rammed his car into Chamkaur Singh, who died at the spot.
The bodies of Naruana and Chamkaur have been taken to the Civil Hospital for post-mortem.
SP (City) Jaspal Singh also reached the hospital and said he would comment only after the post-mortem report.
Police have arrested accused gunman Mandeep Manna. He has been taken to civil hospital as he also received bullet injuries in gunfight with Naruana’s associates.
Mandeep Singh, Naruana’s cousin, said they were going to their fields in the morning when they heard the sound of fire shots, after which they rushed to the house and found Naruana dead.
He said he had increased the security of Naruana after a recent attack on him, but was shocked to know that his personal gunman had killed him.
It is pertinent to mention that a few days back, Naruana was attacked while he was travelling in his car on Malout road in Bathinda, but escaped as his vehicle was bulletproof.
