A 24-year-old man was killed while another was injured by firing in a clash between two groups outside Khalsa College in Amritsar on Wednesday, 1 June.

"Shots were fired during the clash between two groups outside the college. The situation is under control. It was a routine crime, not a gang war," police said, as reported by news agency ANI.

Police said that Lovepreet Singh and Gursimran Singh, residents of Batala, were shot at by two armed assailants on a two-wheeler, who subsequently fled the scene.

While both men were taken to a hospital for treatment, Lovepreet, an employee at a private bank, succumbed to his injuries at the hospital, Police Commissioner Arun Pal Singh said.
