In a brutal event at Punjab’s Khanna, two Dera Sacha Sauda members were gunned down by unidentified assailants on Saturday. The gunmen reportedly came on a motorcycle and killed a man and his son who were the members of Sirsa-headquartered Dera Sacha Sauda. The heartless act was caught on the CCTV camera but the assailants had their faces covered with a handkerchief which made it difficult to identify them.

Here is the CCTV footage of the incident:

The incident took place at a canteen in Khanna’s Jaghera village where the victims used to visit frequently. On Saturday morning, around 7 PM in the evening, two gunmen arrived at the spot with their faces covered and shot both the men in their heads. Both men who lost their lives in the event belonged to Ahmadgarh.

Four to five cartridges of .32 bore were found from the spot and the local police are still investigating the issue trying to find out the real cause and people involved in the event. The Dera Sacha Sauda Chief Dr Gurmeet Ram Rahim is yet to respond to the incident. He is currently busy promoting his film MSG and posted a video on Twitter about the same.

Increasing crime rate in Punjab is one of the key agendas of all the parties in the Assembly Elections as the state has entered a three-party war with Congress, BJP and Aam Admi Party all fighting hard for state’s governance. Yesterday, Punjab’s Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said “not a single drop of water” will be shared with any of the neighbouring states. Speaking about the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal issue, after paying obeisance at the Golden Temple here along with his wife and Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal, he said, “Not a single drop of water will be shared with the neighbouring states.” To a question on the ‘warm relations’ between the Chautala family of Haryana and the Badal family, he said, “There is no alliance between the SAD and the Haryana-based INLD. The political alliance was broken long ago.”
