Rivalry between two gangs is spilling on to the roads. Gaurav of Sachin-Mohini gang and his accomplices opened fire at Lakhwinder Singh Jassa and his brother Sukhwinder Singh Sukha of Chhota Lalla gang in Pritam Nagar area of Haibowal late on Saturday.


In the incident, Sukha (27) took three bullets in his stomach. He has been admitted to DMC Hospital, where his condition is stated to be critical. The Division 4 police have registered a case against Gaurav and his four unidentified accomplices under sections 307 (attempt to murder) and sections 25, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act.

Lakhwinder told the police that on Saturday night, he was standing outside his house, when Gaurav, along with his four accomplices, arrived there in a car and opened fire on him. Lakhwinder, however, escaped unhurt.

The accused fled from the scene, but opened fire at Lakhwinder's brother Sukhwinder Singh Sukha in Pritam Nagar area.

Lakhwinder told to police that Goru Bachha of Sachin-Mohini gang had opened fire at him in 2011 and the case was pending in the court. He said the accused didn't want him to record his statement in the court.
