Ludhiana, July 21

A former SAD councillor is among five booked by the police on the charges of firing at a property dealer over an old property dispute on the Pakhowal road on late Monday night.

The accused have been identified as Mintu Grewal, Ravi Sekhon, former SAD councillor Tanvir Dhaliwal, Amit Kumar and Simran Singh.

Complainant Prem Singh of Omax Flats told the police that on Monday at around 11.40 pm he was heading towards the flats on the Pakhowal road from the Flower chowk. He noticed a Swift car chasing him and suspecting something suspicious, he accelerated his car.

Occupants of the Swift car then paralleled their car with his and Mintu Grewal fired at him but he had a miraculous escape. He then sped his car into the Omax flats and alerted the security guards.

“I also took a round of a petrol station to save my life and CCTV cameras of the station also captured the Swift Dzire car of the accused while they were chasing me,” alleged the complainant.
