Fatehgarh Sahib: Jora Singh, the suspect in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University VC shooting case, on Thursday said he fired at the academician out of "humiliation" and "insult" he faced when one of his relatives was denied admission in the varsity.

Ludhiana Range DIG MF Farooqui accompanied by Fatehgarh Sahib SSP Ranbir Singh Khatra, told reporters that during questioning, Jora said he had met VC Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia and later had heated arguments with him when he denied admission to his relative in the university.

Jora felt "humiliated" and "insulted" at the refusal and decided to take "revenge" on Ahluwalia, the police officials said.

The suspect was produced in a local court where he told media persons that he met the VC after getting a recommendation letter from "a senior political leader" to get his relative admitted in the university and alleged that another person who had less marks than his relative managed to get admission.

Ahluwalia, who was shot from close range on August one, is on life support system at a Chandigarh hospital and doctors attending on him say his blood pressure is unstable.

Farooqui said that Khatra had constituted a special team to solve the case and police have recovered Jora's licensed revolver .32 Bore which was used in the crime along with three live and three empty cartridges.
