A 32-year-old man from Sangrur shot himself in the thigh. And he did this after his female friends refused a night out with him.
The two sat in a car and Sarabjit – the man – was trying to convince his friend to accompany him for a night out outside the city. After she refused once, he warned that if she refused one more time, he will shoot himself in the thigh.
When the girl refused to accede to his demand, Sarbjit shot himself in the thigh. Then he contacted the police but concocted the story that some miscreants had shot him in a park in Phase 7, Mohali. However, according to the SSP of Mohali, Kuldeep Singh Chahal the police did not believe his version since it was contradictory to the statement he gave. The police said, how was it possible that a man had been shot and the so-called assailants kept the pistol in the custody of the victim.
Finally, the woman friend of the accused-cum-victim of sorts, a Dhuri-based woman confirmed that the man shot himself in the thigh after she refused to accompany him for a night out.
The accused Sarabjit is undergoing treatment in the hospital and will be arrested as soon as he is decalred fit.
