  • Guru Nanak Auto Enterprises is among the top exporters and manufacturers of automotive components like rear axle shafts, brake camshafts, torsion bars, drive shafts, clutch shafts and truck bars. It also provides forging facilities, heat treatment facility, etc. The company ranks among the top suppliers of the country.

The police said Gurinder was immediately rushed to a private hospital in Phagwara after the family members heard the gunshot. He was referred to Johal Hospital in Rama Mandi where he breathed his last at around 12.30 pm on Wednesday. The doctors stated Gurinder was in a critical condition and could not be saved even after a prolonged operation. The bullet had pierced through his head from the right side.

Dr Amit Choudhary, medical superintendent, Johal Hospital, said, “The patient was brought here at 3.14 am and after a few tests and scanning, he was taken to operation theatre. The bullet shrapnels had covered the whole skull of the patient and his brain was completely damaged. After performing a surgery which lasted three hours, the patient was shifted to another ward but there was no improvement in his condition.”
