Even 20 days after the firing incident outside Score discotheque in Sector 8, in which a group of four youths fired indiscriminately at people, leaving three injured, the UT police have failed to make any breakthrough in the case.
Interestingly, the police managed to recover a Zen car from the spot. The close-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage was also procured from the discotheque to identify them. But, despite getting clues like mobile numbers and footage, it failed to push the investigation further to trace the accused.
What was the incident?
As per the CCTV camera footage, between 2:09am to 2:12am, nine bullets were fired by a group of four youths - Kamaljeet, Lakhvinder and their accomplice, a resident of Ferozepur and Sharanpreet alias Sharni, a Ludhiana-based youth - after they were refused drinks by the disco staff as it was closing time. The accused insisted on having drinks and exchanged heated arguments with the bouncers, leading to a scuffle. The bouncers physically removed the accused from the disco, following which, one of the youths took out a gun and started firing.
Those injured have been identified as Akashdeep of Nayagaon, Shilpa Rai of Delhi and discotheque employee Deep Kumar.
The police claimed that they had identified all accused and their addresses and the police team had been conducting raids to nab them.
Rs 25,000 award announcement
The police have announced a reward of Rs 25,000 for providing any information regarding the case. This revealed that the police were not able to take a lead in the case despite having clues recovered from the spot.
Accused has moved out of state, says SSP
"We have identified all of them and the raids are being conducted at their residences to nab them. The accused are not in Punjab and have moved out of the state, but still police teams are trying to trace their hideouts," said Sukhchain Singh Gill, senior superintendent of police.
