A day after former Punjab MLA Malkit Singh Keetu was allegedly shot at by his nephews in Moga district over a property dispute, police have failed to make breakthrough as the prime accused are still at large. “We haven’t made any arrest so far. But we are hopeful about nabbing the accused soon,” SSP (Moga) Surjit Singh Grewal said.
The 67-year-old former Shiromani Akali Dal MLA from Barnala was allegedly shot at in his native Bilaspur village yesterday morning. He died while being taken to hospital here. A case has been registered against Keetu’s three nephews — Jaspreet Singh, Harpreet Singh and Gurpreet Singh — along with three others, the SSP said. Police parties had been despatched to various places including Punjab and Rajasthan, where police the accused may be hiding, he said. Punjab’s DGP Sumedh Singh Saini yesterday deputed S K Sharma, ADG, Law and Order, to Moga to supervise the ongoing investigations. Preliminary investigations have revealed that dispute over a piece of land might have been the cause behind the incident.
