A day after Punjabi singer Parmish Verma and his friend Kulwant Singh Chahal were shot at, the police on Sunday arrested an aide of gangster Dilpreet Singh Dhahan alias Dilpreet Baba.

Sources said the accused had been identified as Harvinder Singh alias Happy (26). He was nabbed by the police from his native Gullerwala village in Baddi in the early hours on Sunday.

The sources claimed that three-four persons, including two industrialists from Baddi, had also been rounded up. The police, however, refused to confirm.

Mohali SSP Kuldeep Singh Chahal said: “We have learnt that the assailants wanted to eliminate the singer, but the motive is not clear yet. Happy is an aide of Dilpreet Singh, who has taken responsibility of attacking the singer on social media. Our teams are on job to arrest other accused involved in the case.”

The sources claimed that Happy was present in SUV used in the crime. He is facing another criminal case registered in Baddi. He is the son of a schoolteacher.

Happy has been remanded in police custody for five days. Police teams have been sent to conduct raids in various districts. The sources claimed that another aide of Dilpreet Singh, identified as Bhupinder Singh alias Bhinda Don, had been arrested by the Amritsar police.
