Gangster took to facebook to claim responsibility; but police is cautious
While police is still searching for the motive behind the attack, two Punjab gangsters had claimed responsibility.
Dilpreet Singh Dhahan posted on facebook his picture with a gun in his hand and Parmish Verma’s picture with a cross on it. The post says, ‘I, Dilpreet Singh Dhahan, want to tell everyone that I’m behind the shooting of Parmish Verma.’
The police said another gangster, Sampat Nehra, also claimed responsibility.
“These claims could be to mislead the investigation but the involvement of gangsters cannot be ruled out,” said Senior Superintendent of Police, Kuldeep Singh Chahal.
It is reported that police officers privy to the investigation said that Dilpreet had been making extortion calls to Parmish.
Parmish Verma had shot to fame with its chartbuster ‘Gaal ni Kadni‘ song that has over 118 million views on Youtube. His latest song ‘Shaad‘ has earned 27 million views in just three weeks of its release.
