Around 15 assailants allegedly opened attack on a taxi stand behind Arora Cinema on Gill Road, leaving two drivers injured on Thursday afternoon.

The accused allegedly attacked Harpreet Singh alias Happy and Sonu with sharp-edged weapons on their heads. The victims have been admitted to Lord Mahavira Civil Hospital.

The taxi stand is run by Amandeep Singh Khaira, brother of RTI activist Kuldeep Singh Khaira.
In his complaint to police, Amandeep said Mintu Walia and Mukhtiar Walia, who also ran a taxi stand in the area, were threatening him to wind up his business and move elsewhere. But he had refused to budge.

Therefore, Amandeep alleged that the accused visited his stand and entered in a scuffle with him, before calling on their accomplices. The assailants then appeared there and opened attack on them with sharp-edged weapons, he alleged.

Varinder Singh, station house officer at Shimlapuri police station, said they would take statement of the victims at civil hospital before registering a case.
