Amritsar, August 4

Gangster Rana Kandowalia, who was shot at a private hospital in Amritsar yesterday, succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday, said Police Commissioner Sukhchain Singh Gill.

Kandowalia was critical after being shot at and was undergoing treatment at the ICU of the hospital. The city police booked four persons, including Jagroshan, Mani Rayya, both accomplices of gangster Jaggu Bhagwanpuria, and two unknown persons in this connection.

Meanwhile, a Facebook post on an account named Bhgwanpuria Jaggu claimed that Goldy Brar killed Rana Kandowalia at the direction of Bhgwanpuria. Jaggu, in a Facebook post, claimed that Rana used to support Vicky Gondar and Davinder Babiha in the past and he had warned him of the consequences. Jaggu also threatened other targets and asked them to be ready in his alleged Facebook post. Police officers claim that they will check the authenticity of social media posts and take action.

Kandowalia had gone to meet a relative admitted to the hospital at circular road yesterday. Four armed assailants entered the hospital premises around 7.20 pm last evening. Two of them went up to the second floor, where they allegedly opened fire at Kandowalia.
