Ludhiana, January 5

The city police have identified two of the four persons involved in firing at a college student at Kakowal village on Tuesday.

Preliminary investigation by the police indicated that four youths, all believed to be students of GGN Khalsa College here, were involved in firing shots outside the house of Gurpreet Singh, resident of Bawa Colony at Kakowal here.

The reason of attack by firearms is said to be some tiff during the college union elections.

The police said two of the four accused were identified as Vishu Kainth, resident of New Madhopuri, and Amarjot Chauhan, while the other accused are yet to be identified.

A case under Sections 307, 506, 34 and 120-B of the IPC and Sections 25, 27, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act has been registered at the Basti Jodhewal police station here last evening.

In his statement before the police, Gurpreet Singh, a student of BA-III in GGN Khalsa College, said he was running for the post of president of the college union. But there was some uproar and one of the accused persons Amarjot Chauhan was declared president, while he (Gurpreet) was elected to the post of vice-president. “Several shots were fired by the assailants, who had masked their faces and I could not identify any of them,” he said.

The SHO of the Basti Jodhewal police station Vijay Kumar said police teams were formed to arrest the accused persons and raids are being conducted on their possible hideouts.
