AMRITSAR: Nearly two weeks after the killing of a Rashtriya Swayam Sewak (RSS) leader in Ludhiana, unidentified assailants shot dead Vipina Sharma, leader of a lesser known Hindu outfit Hindu Sangarash Sena in broad day light on Monday.
According to reports, four unidentified assailants arrived on two separate motorcycles at Bharat Nagar, Batala Road at around 3 PM on Monday. Sharma was accompanied with his friend on motorcycle and was on his way to home. As the two turbaned gun wielding assailants intercepted the motorcycle, Sharma fell on the ground while his friend fled. The accused opened fire on Sharma from close range while their two accomplice were standing at a distance. Sharma died on the spot.
The incident was recorded on CCTV in which two turbaned persons are seen shooting Sharma.

After the attack, Sharma was taken to the Escort Hospital where a team of doctors declared him brought dead. Hospital Director HP Singh said, “There were around 15 injury marks on the body, including eight bullet marks.”
Commissioner of Police Srivastava said the exact number of bullets used to kill Sharma could be ascertained only after the post-mortem report, but that at least 12 bullets had hit the Hindu outfit’s leader.
The police are yet to confirm the motive of the attack. “It is a targeted killing and we are verifying all the aspects particularly a past threat perception if any,” said Srivastava.

Punjab Hindu Sangharsh Sena Vice President Rajesh Palta alleged that the killing of Hindu leaders in the state indicated that militancy had once again been revived in Punjab. source from scroll.in
