6 undertrials attacked outside court


Six undertrials who were coming out of court number 12 after attending a hearing in a murder case were attacked by around 12 men on Thursday.

Reportedly, Simranjit Singh, an undertrial who was seriously injured, was taken to Civil Hospital where he got stitches on the face.

However, the attackers managed to flee.

The undertrials are booked in a murder case of three men in 2011.

Sukhwinder Singh, father of Jaskirat Singh, one of the undertrials, said, "The police were taking my son and other undertrials and they were handcuffed when suddenly the rival party attacked them."

A police complaint was registered by the kin of the undertrials.
