In the viral video, Baljinder Singh is seen strolling in his house. Meanwhile, a person comes from the gate and starts shooting at them. The attacker runs away before the people nearby can join him. The seriously injured Congress leader is taken to the hospital. Still, despite all the efforts of the doctors, Baljinder Singh could not be saved. There is resentment among Congress workers over the murder of Baljinder Singh. He has demanded strict action by arresting the attackers as soon as possible.
According to a Congress leader, two attackers shot one bullet in the chest and the other in the stomach. Raising questions on the law and order situation of the state, he said, “The situation of law and order has become such that forget outside the house, now bullets are being fired inside the house also.”
It is being told that Canada-based Khalistani terrorist Arsh Dalla has taken responsibility for this murder. He took this responsibility through a Facebook post made a few hours after the murder. At present, the police have not yet confirmed the claim of the Khalistani group. The matter is being investigated.
