Brothers Shot at by Rivals in Ludhiana’s Jain Colony: A Terrifying Incident Unfolds
In a shocking incident that took place in Jain Colony, Daba, on Monday afternoon, two brothers from Kabir Nagar were shot at by their rivals. The incident occurred following a scuffle between the two groups, which had escalated to the point where stones were being pelted at each other. It is believed that the accused had called the duo to the spot on the pretext of settling an old enmity. However, upon their arrival, the accused launched a vicious attack on them. In the midst of the chaos, a local shopkeeper who tried to intervene also suffered injuries.
The intensity of the attack was evident as at least six bullets were fired, with three of them hitting the victims. Both brothers, identified as Maninder Singh (alias Baba) and Ranbir Singh (alias Laddu), were rushed to a nearby private hospital. Maninder sustained injuries to his leg and arm, while Ranbir was hit in the arm.
Upon receiving the information, the police promptly arrived at the scene and initiated an investigation. During their inquiry, investigators raised suspicions about the involvement of a lawyer who is related to one of the key accused individuals.
Inderjit Singh, a friend of the victims, provided a harrowing account of the incident. He explained that he had accompanied Maninder and Ranbir to Jain Colony after receiving a call from Harsh Mahajan, one of the accused. However, upon reaching the spot and sensing danger, they decided against getting involved and attempted to leave. Unfortunately, their escape was met with a barrage of stones and gunfire, resulting in the brothers sustaining serious injuries.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP, Industrial area-B) Sandeep Vadhera shed further light on the situation. He revealed that Maninder and Harsh Mahajan had a longstanding feud with the accused. Previously, an FIR had been lodged against Maninder, and the altercation between the two groups had escalated on the night of Lohri.
The ACP also mentioned that Harsh’s brother-in-law, a lawyer based in Chandigarh, was present at the scene. Inderjit Singh alleged that the lawyer, Vinod Raj, was the one who opened fire on the brothers. Investigators are currently verifying whether the accused possessed a licensed weapon.
As the investigation continues, the victims’ statements will be recorded, and a case will be registered accordingly. The incident has left the residents of Jain Colony in shock and fear, highlighting the need for swift and decisive action to ensure the safety and security of the community.
It is essential for authorities to thoroughly investigate the matter and bring the culprits to justice, providing a sense of relief and peace to the victims and their families.
