He sustained bullet injuries and was rushed to DMC Ludhiana, where he was under treatment.
Addressing a press conference, Arpit Shukla said that the duo has confessed that Bhalu gang carried out the firing incident. “Bhalu gang was after Pancham Noor and tried to follow him on Saturday also. Though, they followed him but Pancham managed to flee because of heavy security in the city,” he said. The Commissioner of Police also said that they recovered two pistols and some live cartridges from the possession of the two gangsters. “On Sunday morning, rival gangsters of Bhalu gang namely Gursharan Singh Bhalu, Monu Dhaba, Kulwinder Singh Babbu and Deepak Sehdev who were riding motorbikes waylaid Pancham Noor on Cool Road and opened fire on him with moments,” he said.
Arpit Shukla maintained that Bhalu and Pancham were friends turned foe. “Both were close friends but later parted ways.
