The name of the youth is Amarinder Singh, who is a resident of Ferozepur. It is said despite having a bullet wound; youth himself drove the car to the hospital.

The youth had also reached the girl’s hostel yesterday to meet her, but the girl refused to meet him and get married. After this, the young man shot himself in the chest. A team of doctors operated him and removed the bullet.

Sub Inspector Sewa Singh said the 21-year-old youth used his father's licensed revolver to shoot himself. A case has been registered against him and his father under Section 309 of IPC and 25/27/30/59 of the Arms Act. — TNS
