Criticising the health officials of a civil hospital in Fathergarh Sahib, Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia’s son demanded a CBI probe in the attack on his father in which he was injured critically on Monday.
Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia, vice chancellor of Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Fathehgarh was shot at on Monday by an unknown assailants in the university campus itself.
While talking to media persons at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research(PGI), Chandigarh, where his father is undergoing treatment, VK Ahluwalia said his father is still critical.

Chief minister Badal visited PGI in the morning and stayed there for around 45 minutes.
VK Ahluwalia also criticised the role of civil hospital officials in Fatehgarh Sahib. He claimed that immediately after the incident, his father was rushed to a local civil hospital, but there was no doctor to attend to him and he was not given first aid. Eventually, he was rushed to PGI without any first aid.
PGI doctors revealed that Ahluwalia’s condition was critical. He is in the ICU and on a ventilator.
Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University was inaugurated by Parkash Singh Badal on July 25 where Ahluwalia was made the vice chancellor. Some radical outfits had opposed his appointment.
