Tribune News Service

Panchkula, August 8

The local police have arrested two persons in connection with a firing incident that took place near a liquor vend in the Mansa Devi Complex (MDC) area yesterday, leaving a Pinjore resident injured. A 29-year-old youth of Abullapur in Pinjore, identified as Satpal, had sustained bullet injuries on his left leg in the incident.

The suspects have been identified as Subhash, a resident of Sonepat, and Kishan Kumar, a resident of Mani Majra, Chandigarh. They were produced in a local court today, which sent them to 14-day judicial custody.

According to the police, the incident took place around 6:40 pm on Friday when Satpal, along with his friends Satbir, Bhupender and Prince Thakur, was returning from Mohali in a car. They stopped on the Panchkula-Mani Majra border as Satpal wanted to answer the call of nature.

"When he was going behind the liquor vend, an unidentified person standing near a paan shop pointed a gun at him and fired a shot," the police said. The shooter then fled from the spot.

A case under Section 307 of the IPC and Section 25, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act was registered in this connection.
