Punjabi singer Navjot Singh found shot dead in Chandigarh, police probes murder
Reportedly, he had called up his mother minutes before he was killed and told her that he was returning home in Behra village.
23-year-old Punjabi singer, Navjot Singh, was found dead in Dera Bassi near Chandigarh on Monday. According to reports, Navjot Singh's body, bearing four to five bullet marks, was found few meters away from his car in Dera Bassi, Mohali, at around 1 am.
A murder case has been registered against unidentified persons.
The police ruled out robbery as the reason for the killing since nothing had been taken away from him or his car. Since he was a struggling artiste, extortion by gangsters was also ruled out. The singer was living in a rented apartment in S.A.S. Nagar, adjoining Chandigarh.
Reportedly, he had called up his mother minutes before he was killed and told her that he was returning home in Behra village. The singer's family, living in Mohali, were searching for him after he did not reach home last night, the police said.
