A 27-year-old law student from Rayat and Bahra University was arrested for allegedly opening fire at a pizza outlet manager. The manager had turned up to the rescue of his delivery boy. The incident took place at Gilco Valley in Kharar, Punjab. However, no one was injured. The accused, Sanam Setia, of Punjab’s Fazilka district has been arrested. The police have seized a .22-bore pistol, a shell, and 20 live cartridges from him.
According to Bhagwant Singh, Station House Officer (SHO), “Setia had ordered food online from the outlet of a popular pizza chain. About 30 minute later, when it was delivered at his door, he complained that it was cold and demanded a fresh one.” The pizza delivery boy connected him to his manager. They both had a fight on the mobile phone.
Setia allegedly detained the pizza boy and told the manager to bring him a hot pizza if he wanted him back. The manager came to the spot with two other men. Again, both had a quarrel, in which Setia allegedly took out his licenced pistol and shot at the manager.
A case has been registered under Sections 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Sections 27 (punishment for using arms to kill) and 54 (if firing can result in death) of the Arms Act. A court has remanded the accused in judicial custody.
