Punjabi singer Amanjot Singh Panwar aka Alfaaz was injured after he was hit by a pick-up truck near a dhaba on Landran-Banur road.
The incident happened when a worker of the dhaba was trying to flee by taking away the vehicle.
The Sohana Station House Officer (SHO), Inspector Gurcharan Singh, told The Indian Express that Alfaaz along with his three friends had gone to a dhaba on Saturday night where Vicky met him. The SHO added that Vicky had some monetary issue with the owner of the dhaba.
“Vicky had met Alfaaz and requested him to help him to get his money from the dhaba owner. Alfaaz asked the dhaba owner about the issue. The dhaba owner told Alfaaz that Vicky is his worker and a drunkard, and creates scene every day,” the SHO said.
