Gangster boasts on Facebook after shooting Punjabi singer

Famous Punjabi singer Parmish Verma was on Friday night shot at by some unidentified assailants while he along with his friend was returning home after attending an event in Mohali.

Verma's song "Gaal Nahin Kadhnai" which was released past year have been viewed over 118 million times on YouTube.

Verma and his friend were shot in Phase 8, Industrial Area, Mohali when the duo was returning home.

Mohali SSP Kuldeep Singh Chahal reportedly said that they are investigating the matter and scrutinising the CCTV footage.

Police said that a white Hyundai Creta vehicle followed singer's auto from Chandigarh.

A case has been registered in this regard and investigation is underway. A police source has said Verma's knee was injured in the firing.

Lastly, SEGA revealed that a new entry in the Sakura Taisen (known as Sakura Wars in the West) series is in the works. The biggest announcement so far has been the introduction of the SEGA MegaDrive Mini.

Shockingly, gangster Dilpreet Singh Dhahan has claimed responsibility for the attack, brazenly uploading a status on his Facebook page making the claim. Along with the post, Singh also shared a selfie with the pistol and another picture of singer Parmish Verma with a red cross drawn across it. Police also claim that Dilpreet took to crime to avenge an assault in the village, but now has links with the Vicky Gounder gang.

The incident took place at around 12.30 am, according to the police official.

Verma is likely to be provided police protection following the attack.

On the list of the most wanted criminals of Chandigarh, Haryana and Punjab police departments, gangster Nehra is son of an assistant sub-inspector with the Chandigarh police.

Dhahan's Facebook post read, "Mein dilpreetsinghdhahansariya nu dasnachaunda k ajjparmishverma de goliyabazianapamariya(I, Dilpreet Singh Dhahan, want to tell everyone that I am behind the shooting of Parmish Verma)".
