The singer was going to see his parents in Behra village. However, the singer’s bullet-ridden body was found on Sunday night from a vacant plot
In what can be termed as yet another sensational case of attack on a Punjabi singer, a 22-year-old singer Navjot Singh was shot dead in Dera Bassi on late Sunday night. It was early last month when a popular Punjabi singer Parmish Verma was injured after being shot at in Mohali district of Punjab. But Navjot Singh was not lucky like Parmish Verma as he lost his life in the incident.
Navjot Singh’s bullet-ridden body was found from a vacant plot in Dera Bassi on late Sunday night. His body was found approximately 50 metres from where his car was found parked. The Punjabi singer was reportedly going to see his parents in Behra village near Dera Bassi, a report said. The singer had recently released two songs.
As per the report, Navjot Singh was living in an apartment in Mohali town’s Eco Towers and had rung up his mother at around 11 pm, telling her that he will reach home in about 5 minutes. However it was never a case to be.
Initially, his family started calling him up to know his location. However, when he did not reach home, they started looking for the singer. Singer’s Micra car was found parked near a factory near Behra village. The car’s back door was found open. The singer’s body had about 4-5 bullet injuries.
“The body has been kept in the mortuary and post mortem is underway. A murder case under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code has been registered,” Mohinder Singh, SHO of Dera Bassi was quoted as saying.
It was early last month only, when a famous Punjabi singer Parmish Verma was shot at in Mohali. He was rushed to Fortis Hospital, Mohali. The incident took place when Parmish after finishing his programme at Elante Mall was headed towards his home in Mohali. All of a sudden he went to have dinner outside. After he had had his dinner, an i20 car came close to him and unidentified persons in the car shot at Parmish, probably when he was inside the car. The shooting happened at Sector 91 of Mohali.
Later, a most wanted gangster Dilpreet Singh Dhahan had claimed responsibility for firing at Parmish Verma. The gangster took the responsibility on a Facebook page. He wrote: “I Dilpreet Singh Dhahan wish to tell everyone that I have shot Parmish Verma.”
