Punjabi singer Parmish Verma and his friend were shot in Mohali, Punjab by unknown assailants while they were returning home late last night. The two were rushed to a hospital and are reportedly out of danger.“Some unidentified persons fired shots at Parmish last night at Sector 91 in Mohali when he was returning home. A bullet hit his leg,” said Kuldeep Chahal, senior superintendent of Police, Mohali, told NDTV, a television news channel.
Parmish Verma is a famous Punjabi director, actor, singer. His smash hit ‘Gaal ni kadni’ was released last year and had been viewed over 118 million times on YouTube. The rising popularity of the song coincides with the near-rout of gangsters from the state in the last few months.
A man by the name of Dilpreet Singh Dhahan, via Facebook post, is claiming to be behind Verma’s shooting. Dhahan uploaded a status on his Facebook page with a picture of himself holding a pistol along with picture of Verma with a cross drawn on it.
“Mein dilpreet Singh dhahan sariya nu dasna chaunda k ajj parmish verma de goliya bazian apa mariya.(I, Dilpreet Singh Dhahan, want to tell everyone that I am behind the shooting of Parmish Verma),” the post claims. The post has been shared 41 times.
