The victim was rushed to the Civil Hospital right away, where the doctor pronounced her dead. The deceased has been identified as Kulwinder Kaur, a resident of Hajiratan locality of Bathinda city, said Davinder Gill, deputy superintendent of police (DSP).

Reacting to the incident, Congress MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira slammed chief minister Bhagwant Mann for the complete collapse of the law and order situation in the state and said, “The other day@BhagwantMann while replying to @AmitShah was taunting him that law & order in PB is better than Up & Bihar but today’s brutal killing of a lady near police post in Bathinda in broad daylight shows PB is worse than Up & Bihar. Cm must take responsibility of murders!”, Khaira tweeted.

The incident took place days after Hindu right-wing leader Sudhir Suri, who headed Punjab-based Shiv Sena (Taksali), was shot dead while he was taking part in a protest outside a temple in the presence of police in Amritsar.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress targeted the Mann-led AAP government over Suri’s killing, alleging a complete breakdown of law and order in the state.
