Bathinda, September 6

A Youth Akali Dal (YAD) leader was shot dead by unidentified persons at Railway Colony near the Thandi Sadak area on Saturday night. The deceased has been identified as Sukhanpreet Singh Sandhu (25), a resident of Lal Singh Basti.

Sandhu was going on a scooter to hand over money to an unidentified person after receiving a phone call.

A pistol and Rs 40,000, which were in possession of Sandhu, were found missing. Police officials recovered an empty shell from the crime scene.

Bathinda Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Gurjit Singh Romana said Sandhu was shot from close range. "We have marked a probe into the incident," he said. Cops are scanning his mobile phone to check the call details.

The incident has created panic in Bathinda as this is the third murder in the past three days in the district. Sandhu had opened fire on Congress workers in the Lal Singh Basti area during the 2019 General Election.
