Amritsar: Six Nihang Singhs were injured while one of them is in a serious condition, after exchange of gun shots during an altercation between two groups of the sect at an annual event here. Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Parmpal Singh said the incident occurred when 70 groups of ‘Nihangs’, consisting of over 2,000 participants from all over Punjab, were taking part in a horse race and displaying tricks on horse back. Every year, as per Sikh community tradition, on the next day of Diwali, ‘Nihangs‘ gather in open ground of Gurdwara Shaheed Ganj to display their Gatka skills to public while moving on the back of horse carrying weapons, Singh said. The situation turned ugly today when two groups of ‘Nihangs’ from Ludhiana indulged in heated arguments during horse race and opened gun fire at each other injuring six, one of them seriously, he said. Heavy police force was deployed keeping in view of display of fire arms, including weapons by Sikh outfits. The moment gun shots were fired, police swung into action and overpowered all the accused involved in the crime from both sides, he said. He said more than twelve ‘Nihangs’ have been arrested, including key accused Sher Singh and Pritam Singh from different groups of the sects.
