Brother of deceased is also critically injured and was with him at the shop. Reacting on the incident ADG Law and Order Anand Kumar said: “We have marked the suspects and believe they will be arrested today.”

This shooting incident comes just four days after a senior RSS leader Ravinder Gosain was shot dead at his residence in Punjab’s Ludhiana by two unidentified gunmen on a motorcycle. The killing of Gosain was one in a series of high-profile murderous attacks on activists belonging to religious or right wing organisations that Punjab has witnessed in recent times.

On Thursday, Punjab government determined to hand over the case to National Investigation Agency (NIA). Chief Minister Amarinder Singh issued the order for NIA probe on a demand by a RSS delegation that met him at his residence on Thursday.

He has also declared a Rs 5 lakh compensation for the deceased’s family and a government job for one of his progeny. Previously on Thursday, Congress MP from Ludhiana Ravneet Singh Bittu claimed that the mastermind of recent killings in Punjab is sitting in Canada and is a pro-Khalistani.
