A government doctor, posted at the civil hospital here, suffered serious head injuries after some unidentified miscreants attacked him before taking his Hyundai Creta car at Landeke village here late Wednesday night.

Dr Raminder Shrama was reportedly going for swimming at Lala Hans Raj School in Landeke village when the incident took place.

As per information, when Raminder reached the school, some unidentified persons, who had come in a white car, allegedly attacked him with baseball bats and decamped with his car.

Dr Raminder sustained serious injuries on his head, shoulders, leg and other body parts during the attack. He has been undergoing treatment at the Dayanand Medical College and Hospital in Ludhiana.

Getting information about the incident, a police team from the Mehna police station, rushed to the spot.

Balvir Singh, investigation officer (IO), said that they have seen footages of close circuit television (CCTV) cameras, but the video was not clear as the incident took place during night.

“We are investigating the case and accused persons will be arrested soon,” he said.

Meanwhile, on the complaint of Gurmatpal Singh, the victim’s brother-in-law, the case was registered under sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 379 (snatching) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Mehna police station.
