The victim has been identified as Chanpreet of Bhauwal village near Nurpur Bedi. The assailants chased him till the road outside the college when he ran for his life.

 

Chanpreet received an injury on his right hand and was taken to the Civil Hospital. His condition is stated to be out of danger.

However, during the investigation, the police did not find his involvement in the case.

 

Talking to mediapersons at the hospital, Chanpreet said he had gone to the college with one of his friends, Gurbaksh Singh, who wanted to take admission. They were standing on the lawns of the college when Neeraj, a resident of Kheri village, and Preeti of Dhadi village allegedly opened fire on him, injuring his hand.
