A day after Punjab youth president of Shiv Sena Amit Arora was shot at by two motorcycle-borne men, members of Shiv Sena along with other like-minded organisations staged a protest in Ludhiana on Thursday.

They gathered outside Christian Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) where Amit Arora has been admitted and held a protest march towards Chaura Bazar, asking shopkeepers to close down their shops.

Chairman of Shiv Sena Punjab Rajiv Tandon, said, ”A few days ago, some terrorist outfits had pasted a threatening letter on the wall of our office. We have lodged a police complaint in this context.”

On Wednesday, Arora, a hosiery unit owner, had arrived at Basti Jodhewal Chowk from the Jalandhar bypass in his car. He was driving and was apparently waiting for someone when the two motorcycle-borne men fired at him and fled.
