Jalandhar, January 20

A 30-year-old man was injured in a firing incident that reportedly occurred at the venue of an election meeting organised by SAD MLA Gurpartap Wadala at Chuhar village of Nakodar.

The MLA had left the venue when the incident occurred. The injured has been identified as Sarabjit Singh, driver of a former sarpanch. Both victim and accused had attended the meeting, said witnesses.

Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Wadala claimed he attended the meeting and left 15 minutes before the incident took place. “I have been told a village youth and some outsiders had a verbal duel over some personal matter,” he said.

Villagers claimed two groups clashed with sticks before one of the youths pulled out a gun and fired two shots. A bullet grazed the nose of the victim, who was taken to a private hospital in Jalandhar.
