The victim has been identified as Gurpreet Singh. He was living abroad and returned home a few days ago for the treatment of spinal cord.

Victim’s father Nirver Singh said that two groups had a violent scuffle in the area on Sunday night. His son Gurpreet on Monday accompanied one of the groups to the police station for lodging a complaint, for which the rival group nursed a rivalry against his son.

Nirver added that when his son was near Railway crossing on Monday evening, the accused turned up and opened fire at him. After pumping two bullets in his body, the accused escaped.

He added that he rushed his son to hospital, where his condition has been stated to be serious.

Assistant commissioner of police (ACP Civil Lines) Jatin Bansal said that some of the accused have been identified and police will arrest them soon.
