Chandigarh, July 8

Two groups of armed youths clashed in Sector 44 last night. As Ankur Panwar (28) was attacked with a sharp weapon, his friend fired two shots in retaliation, forcing the assailants to flee. The police have registered cross-FIRs.

According to sources, Ankur and Puneet Arora had an argument over some issue, following which Ankur and his friends Abhinav Tomar (34) and Sidhant Thakur (26), both residents of Sector 45; Harinder Deswal (19) and Khushwinder Singh (22), both Sector 44 residents, decided to teach Puneet a lesson. Ankur and his friends asked Puneet to meet them in Sector 44.

Puneet, accompanied by around 12 armed youths, arrived at the spot in two cars and a motorcycle. They attacked Ankur. His friends, who were standing nearby, rushed to save him.

The police said Abhinav was carrying a pistol and he fired two shots at the assailants. No one was injured in the gunfire.

The incident was captured on a CCTV camera installed nearby. The police said the youths accompanying Ankur had been detained.
