A youth sustained injuries as multiple gunshots were fired in Lohgarh here this evening.

According to eyewitnesses, five shots were fired around 8:30 pm. The police did not confirm the number of gunshots fired.

The victim has been identified as Harpreet Singh, a resident of Lohgarh. He received injuries on his left leg and has been admitted to the Civil Hospital at Dera Bassi.

The police have detained three girls and one youth from the spot and are investigating the matter.

When he enquired about the reason, she started arguing with him and soon called up her acquaintances to the spot. Her acquaintances came in a car and one of them fired two shots from inside the vehicle before coming out of it and firing thrice. Harpreet was hit in the left leg.
