The Daba police have booked supporters of Akali candidate from Ludhiana South Hira Singh Gabria for allegedly attacking Lok Insaaf Party leader Simarjeet Singh Bains and vandalising his car on Friday night.

Bains, who is the fray from Atam Nagar, escaped unhurt after his security guard Sunil Kumar opened fire in the air.

SAD workers, however, alleged Bains’ supporters pelted stones at Gabria’s office and even shattered one of the windowpanes. They also alleged the supporters of opening fire in the air. Sub-inspector Baljit Singh said police are probing the cross-complaint.
