INDIA: Army man opens fire on civilians, kills four before shooting himself dead
The army man, who fired indiscriminately standing on the roof of his house in Punjab’s Sangrur on Tuesday, killed at least four people before shooting himself dead.

Sangrur Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Pritpal Singh Thind said the sepoy, who was on leave, entered into three houses in his neighbourhood and killed four people and injured four others by opening fire.

“After firing indiscriminately at public, the jawan shot himself and is dead,” said Sangrur SP Jaskiranjeet Singh Teja.

At least seven persons were injured in the incident .

Meanwhile, Punjab is already going through unrest after members of the Sikh community came out on the streets to protest the alleged desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib, their holy book.

Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal also called an emergency meeting of cabinet ministers on Tuesday. Paramilitary forces were deployed in four districts of Punjab as a precautionary measure even as another incident of “sacrilege” of a holy book took place at a village in Bathinda.
