Two separate Gangsters have claimed responsibility for shooting Punjabi singer Parmish Verma and his friend Kuljit Singh Chahal. Sampat Nehra who is one of Chandigarh’s most wanted criminals and Dilpreet Singh, an A-catagory gangster in Punjab police records have credited themselves for the incident on social media.
Nehra who has his name on the most wanted list of Chandigarh, Haryana and Punjab police, is himself son of a serving assistant sub-inspector with the Chandigarh police department.
His Facebook status says,’Bure hai ham tabhi to zinda hai ache hote to duniya jeene nhi dete’ (We are bad that’s why we are alive, if we were good, the world would not have let us live). He had tried his luck in student politics and was the campus chairman of the Student Organisation of Panjab University (SOPU). In January 2016, Patiala police had arrested Nehra, along with four others in a case of stealing from ATMs.
The other man to take responsibility, Dilpreet Singh who hails from Dhahan village near Nurpur Bedi in Ropar and is named as an accused in 16 cases.

Punjab Police sources say he is into extortion and contract killing. His father, a veterinary inspector, died in January 2017. Police also claim that Dilpreet took to crime to avenge an assault on himself in the village, but now has links with the Vicky Gounder gang.
