Chandigarh: Two unidentified men opened fire at Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) shakha (branch) in charge in Ludhiana on early morning of Monday. However the shakha in charge survived the attack. “Shakha in charge aborted an effort to fire at him by some unidentified miscreants at beginning of prabhat shakha at Ludhiana,” said RSS leader Dr Manmohan Vaidya.
Initial reports claimed that some unidentified men attacked at RSS building in Ludhiana. But the RSS termed the reports false and said that the attack was made at its shakha in charge. “The news telecast on some channels about firing at Ludhiana RSS karyalay is factually wrong,” clarified Dr Vaidya.
The motive behind the attack is still unclear.
