Ludhiana: Two unidentified assailants fired shots at a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Shakha but there were no casualties as the ground was vacant, at new Kidwai Nagar Park, police said.

The incident took place when two motorcycle- borne persons fired shots at the Shakha ahead of the assembly of Sangh swayamsevaks, they said.

The eyewitnesses said that sound of two gun shots were heard. Police said that the unidentified miscreants were wearing monkey caps and hence could not be identified.

DCP Narinder Bhargva said that the police party rushed to the spot after receiving the information. No one was injured in the firing as assembly of Sangh swayamsevaks was yet to start, the DCP said.

It may be recalled that terrorists attacked RSS Shakha at Dresi ground in May 1991 in which five volunteers were gunned down and 15 others were badly injured.

Meanwhile, police have registered a case against two unidentified assailants under IPC sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others) and sections 25/27 of the Arms Act.

DCP Bhargva, who is supervising the operation against the miscreants, said that one cartridge of .32 bore pistol has been recovered from inside the ground.

He said that all efforts are being made to work out the case at the earliest. The security of the local RSS leaders have also been beefed up by police.

Parveen Bansal, president of the district unit of the BJP, appealed to the public to remain calm and peaceful.
