Five youths allegedly opened fire at a 27-year-old bouncer, Abhishek Khairwal, at Shiva Enclave in the Pabhat area of Zirakpur this evening.

The assailants fired two shots at the bouncer. He reportedly saved his life by taking shelter in a property dealer’s office. The bullets hit the front door of the office, breaking its glass. The assailants fled after the incident. Abhishek informed the police, but they reached the spot after an hour.

Empty shells recovered from the spot.

In his statement to the police, Abhishek said he, along with his family, lived at Shiva Enclave. He said he worked as a bouncer, but had left the job for the past two-three months. He said around 4 pm, he was sitting on the stairs in front of his house adjoining the property dealer’s office when one of the assailants came and demanded Rs 2,700 from him. When he refused, another one came and said Sunny had told them that Abhishek would give the money. He said when he told them that he did not know anybody by the name of Sunny, the assailants tried to abduct him in the car. However, he freed himself from the grip of the assailants after a scuffle and ran into the property dealer’s office to save his life. The assailants then fired two bullets at him.

Panic grips residents

Panic gripped residents of the housing society after the firing. Residents said the Honda Amaze used by the assailants had different number plates on it. One number plate had PB 11 and the other PB 15 on it. One of the assailants had a Haryanavi dialect, while the other appeared to be from the Abohar side. They fled towards Nabha village, the residents said.

2 empty shells recovered

The investigating officer, Inspector Deepinder Singh, said the CCTV footage was being checked. He said two empty shells were recovered from the spot.
