A case under Sections 307, 323, 326, 34 and 506 of the IPC and the Arms Act had been registered at the Maloya police station on January 14. The police received a message on Thursday evening that a person, Gursewak Singh (27), was admitted to the GMSH, Sector 16, due to a gunshot injury.

During the course of the investigation, Harsimrat Kaur and Simran were arrested from the market near Dadu Majra Colony on the identification of injured’s mother. Accused Jaanu Malik was arrested near the cremation ground at Dadu Majra with a country-made pistol and an empty shell used in the crime. A mobile phone was also recovered from Harsimrat Kaur.
