Jalandhar: Panic gripped the residents of Khaira Village in Phillaur when a gun shot was heard from inside of the house of SAD Assembly Candidate Baldev Khaira on Sunday morning.When villagers rushed towards the spot,they weren’t allowed to go inside the house.It was told to them from inside that a cook has been accidentally shot from the revolver of gunman of Khaira.Cook was taken to a hospital in Phillaur but was referred to Ludhiana DMC as his condition was found to be serious.He succumbed to his injuries in the afternoon.
Phillaur police tried to mislead the media persons and told them that cook Mohit 25,was setting the bedsheet and the revolver dropped on the floor and a shot was fired accidently. The shot pierced the ribs of the cook Mohit who was employed there just a week back.
But police theory was not digested by the media persons.There were no answer to the questions that how it was possible that gunman may have left for his home in another village leaving his revolver on the bed?How the trigger went off when safety catch was off ?Did the gunman left the safety open?How did the bullet pierced the lungs and not the legs while it fell on the floor?
Ultimately,Phillaur police registered a case u/s 304 A on the Sunday evening against the gunman.SHO PHillaur Jarnail Singh told Daily Post correspondent that case has been registered as gunman Vikram Kumar had shown gross negligence by leaving the revolver at home with safety catch open.
AAP candidate demands judicial inquiry:–Sarup Singh Kandiana, AAP candidate from Phillaur has demanded a judicial inquiry into the incident.”The circumstances under which the cook has died are mysterious. A youth from a poor family has lost his life in the home of a powerful SAD leader and Punjab Police isn’t a reliable agency to investigate the matter ,hence we demand a judicial inquiry of the incident”Sarup Singh said.
