Youth injured in firing in Nawanshahr

Nawanshahr : A youth sustained serious injuries on the shoulder when he was fired upon by two motorbike borne youth near a petrol pump on Rahon Road here at around 12 noon today, the police said.

Station House Officer (SHO) Raj Kumar said three youths identified as Labhpreet Singh of Bhajallan in Garhshankar, Sarbjit Singh Sabbi of village Sauna and Rajesh of village Thane – had gone to the petrol pump to get their vehicle’s fuel tank filled.

Four other persons on two motorcycles there entered into an altercation with them over some issue.

One of them opened fire injuring Labhpreet, who was later shifted to the local civil hospital by his friends, the police said.

Some old enmity between the two groups could be the reason behind today’s incident as the two groups had earlier reportedly clashed in Garhshankar also nearly a month back, said police.

An FIR has been registered against the alleged assailants. We have registered a case under section 307 of IPC and investigations are underway, the SHO said.
