The Hush Post: A Moga youth has been shot dead in SBS Nagar, Ludhiana. The incident took place in the evening at around 7:00 pm at an ahata (tavern).
It all began due to an altercation which turned into a full-fledged fight. The deceased has been identified as Varinder Kumar. Varinder and three of his friends — Satnam, Lucky and Sunny had come to a pharmacy near DMC. From there they picked up some medicines. Then they went to an ahata near Keys Hotel. That is where Varinder had an altercation with some youths. The men went out and they were followed by Varinder. Varinder’s friends, however, stayed back.
After some time, they heard a gunshot. When they went out, they found Varinder bleeding profusely. It is being learnt the Varinder died of a gunshot of his own pistol. However, there is no clarity on whether he was over-powered and shot at or did the trigger accidentally go off in his direction.
Varinder belonged to Moga and he is a relative of an independent councillor there.
