Police sources said Jugraj Singh and Nirmal Singh were rushed to the hospital but the doctors referred Nirmal to the DMC Hospital at Ludhiana keeping in view of his critical situation. He was unconscious at the time of writing this report.
Mehna SHO Ravinder Singh said the incident took place in the morning after a brawl over some issue between the two groups late last night. One group also opened fire last night. The exact cause of the quarrel was yet to be ascertained, he said.
Today morning, a group of people brutally beat Jugraj Singh when he was working in his fields. His neighbourer Nirmal Singh rushed him to the hospital at Moga for treatment. But when he was returning back home, the group of youths who beat Nirmal fired shots at him leaving him seriously injuring him.
The police have registered a case and efforts were afoot to nab the accused.
