“I went for my regular morning walk. Two people on a motorcycle fired two shots. I thought a tyre had burst. Then I felt pain and realized that I was shot. I don’t have any grudges against anyone. But I intervene to get justice for poor. Yesterday 7-8 people came to my office. I know the people who are being suspected behind this,” Singh told to ANI.
