Punjabi gangster named Dilpreet Singh Dhahan is claiming to be behind Parmish Verma's shooting. The singer was reportedly on his way back home with a friend from Chandigarh's Elante Mall in his Toyota Fortuner SUV late Friday night when he was attacked. As per a Hindustan Times report, the two were now undergoing treatment in Fortis hospital in Mahali and were said to be out of danger. The Facebook post since then has garnered over 2,500 shares.
"I Dilpreet Singh Dhahan want to inform you all that I opened fire at Parmish". The gangster said in the post that he had "warned" the singer, saying that their "face to face" meeting had cost him.
The post was shared on Facebook more than 3,000 times and received over 8,000 likes. A police source said Verma's knee was injured in the firing.
Verma's song "Gaal Nahin Kadhnai" which was released a year ago have been viewed over 118 million times on YouTube.
The TOI report also states that Singh is an accused in another murder in Chandigarh where he along with two other people had shot and killed a sarpanch of a village in April 2017 in sector 38.
