A scuffle broke out there,” Sucha Singh, Deputy Superintendent of Police (Amritsar Rural), said, adding that the deceased cop sustained a bullet wound near his ear.

“Look at the situation in Punjab…This morning, assailants attacked and fatally shot ASI Saroop Singh, who was stationed at the Jandiala Guru police station, near the Khankot. Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has been busy organising big events first at Jalandhar, and yesterday in Ludhiana. Meanwhile, incidents of murder, robberies, and dacoities in Punjab have been rising every day. Punjab is now in God’s hands… Have some shame, Bhagwant Mann,” the SAD leader said in a post on the social media platform, X.

However, DSP Sucha Singh has denied any political angle in the matter and said that the murder has been carried out of a ‘personal enmity’.

“We have traced the accused, the case has turned out to be of a personal enmity. Police parties have been dispatched to arrest the accused. There is no political angle,” he said. (ANI)
