Amritsar (Rural) SSP Vikram Jeet Duggal said Sukhmanpreet was returning from a marriage function around 1 am. He was parking his car when a couple of armed persons arrived on the scene and fired at him. He suffered two bullet injuries in the chest that pierced through his rib case area. Injured Sukhmanpreet rushed inside the house and collapsed. His family members immediately took him to hospital where doctors declared him dead.

“As family members had denied any personal enmity, the police were working on different theories in the case. We are analysing his call details to find some clues in the case,” the SSP said, adding that they would crack the case soon.
