The slain ASI has been identified as Gurdeep Singh (56), a resident of the local Police Lines' quarters. His son, Manpreet Singh (19), who was admitted to the local Civil Hospital, was discharged this morning, the police said. Gurdeep, along with his son, was on his way to Kakka Kandiala on a moped to get some medicines after he complained of stomach ache. Gurdeep was riding pillion.

Two unidentified bike-borne men hit Manpreet in the head with an iron rod, leaving him unconscious. As the robbers took away Manpreet's purse and a mobile from his pocket, the ASI caught hold of one of them. As the suspect struggled to set himself free, his accomplice shot the ASI in the chest with a country-made firearm. He died on the spot.

Manpreet later regained consciousness and sought help, but to no avail. He then called the police from his father's mobile.

DSP Sucha Singh Bal said the police had collected the CCTV footage of the incident but the image was grainy due to darkness. The police were trying to find clues, said a police official. The postmortem of the ASI was conducted at the Civil Hospital.

The local police have registered a case under Sections 302 (murder), 397 (use of deadly weapon during robbery), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC, and 25, 54 and 59 of the Arms Act.
