Chandigarh, June 1

The Punjab Police have launched an investigation into the firing incident at the house of a hotelier, brother of a liquor baron, which is primarily being investigated by the Chandigarh Police.

DGP Dinkar Gupta said as the target of the attack -- Arvind Singla -- had large liquor business in Punjab, an investigation to ascertain the motive behind the crime and gather intelligence inputs on threats, business rivalry, role of gangsters or any other angle was being probed.

ADGP RN Dhoke, Head, Internal Security, was supervising the probe.

Arvind Singla is already under the Punjab Police security cover. He was given four gunmen. “He was given security on general threat perception. There was no specific threat. More may be known during the probe,” said DGP Gupta.

Four or five unidentified men fired 17 gunshots at the Sector 33 bungalow of hotelier and businessman Rakesh Singla last evening. The Chandigarh Police claimed the attackers were looking for his brother and liquor baron Arvind Singla.
