New Delhi: WWE wrestler and one of India’s biggest celebrity Dalip Singh alias The Great Khali’s bodyguards opened fire on his fans when they tried to get photographed with him. The Bigg Boss 4 runner up was on a visit to Ludhiana when this incident happened. Two people are said to have been moved to the hospital with one being critically injured.
The great Khali had come to the city to visit deputy speaker of Punjab Vidhan Sabha and a BJP Leader Sat Pal Gosain.
Excited by the presence of their favorite wrestling star the fans had gathered outside the house of Gosain. They wanted to get their photographs clicked with the wrestling star. Few of them went inside the house of Gosain to get their photographs clicked but were refused.
Later when Khali came out the fans jostled with his bodyguards to get near their favourite star but as the bodyguards resisted this move a scuffle ensued. The bodyguards had to open fire and several rounds were fired injuring a few fans, one of them seriously.
An eyewitness, Rajan said that at first the bodyguards fired in the air to scare the fans away but soon after fired directly injuring two people. He further added that instead of taking action against Khali’s bodyguards the police threatened to register cases against the people who were protesting against the firing.
Khali's vehicle was stoned by the mob. The mob protested in front of the house of Gosain even after Khali had left.
