Three Akali Dal workers are learnt to have suffered gunshot wounds after allegedly being attacked by Congress workers in Jalalabad on Tuesday, said Youth Akali Dal chief Parambans Singh Romana.
Romana alleged the attackers were led by the brother of a Congress MLA. He alleged the attack occurred at Jalalabad SDM’s office where Akali Dal president Sukhbir Badal had accompanied party candidates to file nomination for MC elections.
Romana alleged it was an attack on Sukhbir Badal as his SUV too was pelted with stones. “Sukhbir Badal is unhurt, though attackers opened fire at his bullet-proof car and pelted stones too,” Romana claimed.
Sources said Sukhbir was sitting on the front seat of his state government-provided bulletproof SUV when a mob pelted stones inside the SDM office at Jalalabad. There was no security personnel or pilot vehicle in front of his SUV, the sources said.
