Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday, 19 October, said the murder case of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Ravinder Gosai, who was shot dead in Ludhiana on Tuesday, 17 October, has been transferred to the National Investigation Agency, on the request of the organisation.

Two unidentified men shot Gosai dead when he was reportedly returning home after attending the shaka, or RSS's morning drill.

Gosai died on the spot, the police said, adding that the assailants were absconding.


Gosai was the head of Raghunath Nagar Mohan Shakha of RSS Ludhiana, reported Hindustan Times. He also held a district-level post in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

In February 2016, unidentified men had opened fire on local RSS leader Naresh Kumar, in Kidwayi Nagar in Ludhiana. However, unlike Gosai, Kumar survived the attack.
