Amritsar, August 10

A petrol pump owner was shot dead by armed assailants in Amritsar on Wednesday evening.

The incident occurred despite the fact that city police carried out flag march in to ‘instill’ a sense of security among the people ahead of Independence Day.

The victim, Mohan Singh, used to run a filling station on Fatehgarh Churian road here.

An eyewitness said Mohan Singh had just reached near his house when Innova-borne assailant shot him. The eyewitness claimed nobody in the neighbourhood heard the sound of gunshots being fired. The assailants had apparently put silencers on the weapons.
