Ludhiana: Chand Kaur, ex-Namdhari chief’s wife was reportedly shot at by some unidentified gunmen at Bhaini village. Chand Kaur, 88, was rushed to Apolo Hospital near Sherpur Chowk, Ludhiana for treatment. Her condition is said to be critical.
According to Lakhvir Singh, PRO of Bhaini Sahib, Chand Kaur suffered two bullet injuries — one in the head and another in the abdomen.
As per The Tribune (TT), the incident took place at around 10 am when she was visiting an educational institution along with her driver on an electronic golf cart.
Suddenly, two unidentified motorcycle-borne persons intercepted the vehicle and the pillion rider opened fire at Chand Kaur.
According to the cart driver, five shots were fired. He added that soon after opening the fire, the assailants managed to flee the spot on their bike.
A heavy police force has been deployed in Bhaini village following the incident. A massive combing operation has been launched in Bhaini, Machhiwara, Samrala, Khanna and nearby places to locate the assailants.
The PRO said Chand Kaur was facing threats but she had refused to take security cover.
Chand Kaur was involved in a controversy after she had appointed Thakur Uday Singh as the next sect head following the death of her husband Jagjit Singh in 2012. A faction led by Dalip Singh, elder brother of Uday Singh, had opposed the move.
