Ludhiana, February 19

The Ludhiana police claimed to have nabbed a man who opened fired at a youth about two years ago in Daba. The victim is a property dealer.

The accused has been identified as Pawan Kumar of Gobind Nagar, Shimlapuri.

Joint Commissioner of Police (Rural) Sachin Gupta conducted a press conference in this regard.

On November 22, 2018, Sharanpal Singh Shalu (32) of Gobind Nagar had suffered bullet injuries on his head and later, the Daba police had registered an attempt to murder case against the accused.

Today, acting on a tip-off, the police conducted a raid at Bapu Market, Lohara, and nabbed him. The police also recovered two countrymade weapons (.315 bore and .303 bore).

The JCP said the police remand of the accused would be sought from court. The accused fired at the victim as the latter used to urinate in front of his shop and the duo also had a scuffle over the matter. — TNS
