Ludhiana, September 2

A shooting incident was reported in Sector 32 on Chandigarh Road due to dog poo. The pet owner’s son opened fire on a family, who argued with his father over the pet’s poo.

Fortunately, no one was shot and injured in the incident. Police obtained the CCTV footage, in which the shooting incident was allegedly filmed and launched a manhunt to catch the accused.

According to reports, late yesterday evening, Somnath was standing outside his house in Sector 32 where Vijay Gambhir, who lives in the same locality, came with his dog. The dog pooped near Somnath’s house and upon seeing this, he started arguing with Vijay. Somanth told Vijay to avoid going near his house as his dog was always pooping nearby.

Today morning, Vijay’s son Sidharth, accompanied by his helpers, came to Somnath and exchanged heated arguments with his family. Enraged, Sidhart fired a first shot in the air, then at Somnath and his family. Fortunately, no one was shot. The accused also attempted to fire the third shot, but his gun jammed.

Meanwhile, cops from the No. 7 Police Division also arrived on the scene and recovered two cartridges.

SHO Police Division No. 7 Inspector Davinder Sharma said a case would be filed against the accused and his assistants.
