Even two weeks after 56-year-old ASI Gurdeep Singh was shot by two robbers near Kakka Kandiala on November 1, the local police have failed to make any breakthrough in the case. Victim’s son Manpreet Singh was injured in the incident.

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, 59 of the Arms Act had been registered by the police.

The ASI, a resident of the local Police Lines residential quarters, along with Manpreet was riding towards the village to fetch medicine when two masked men waylaid them. The assailants hit Manpreet with a rod and shot the ASI, killing on the spot.

The city police had obtained CCTV footage of nearby residences but couldn’t identify the suspects. SHO Jaswant Singh said they had no leads in the case so far.
