Singer Guru Randhawa, who was recently attacked in Vancouver, Canada, is back in India. The composer was attacked by a Punjabi man after his performance at a concert in Vancouver. His team has shared a note on Instagram stating that Randhawa has sustained an injury, but he is fine and at home.

“…when Guru finished the show and was leaving the stage, that punjabi man came and hit him hard on his face with a punch, because of which Guru started bleeding on the spot from his forehead,” a statement from Randhawa’s team read.

The statement also revealed that Guru Randhawa has decided to never perform in Canada, after his experience in Vancouver.

Here’s the entire statement from Guru Randhawa’s team:

“Guru is back in India with four stitches on his right eyebrow and mega successful USA/Canada tour. The incident happened on 28th July in Vancouver when Guru told one Punjabi man not to come on stage while he was performing for the audience. That man was trying to come on stage again and again and then he started fighting with everyone backstage. He was known to the local promoter Surinder Sanghera who sent him away during the show. But at the end when Guru finished the show and was leaving the stage, that punjabi man came and hit him hard on his face with a punch , because of which Guru started bleeding on the spot from his forehead above eyebrow and went back to stage and showed it to the audience.

That man was with few others and whosoever tried to stopped them, they were punching them and then they all ran away.

Earlier today, a Twitter user posted a photo of Guru Randhawa after the attack. In a tweet, she mentioned, “#GuruRandhawa was treated badly during #Vancouver show by #Punjabi youth in #Canada. It is totally unacceptable to become physical with any of performer, specifically in #Canada. Picture was clicked right after #GuruRandhawa was beaten.”

Randhawa was on a nine-city tour in the US and Canada. His Vancouver concert was the last leg of his tour.
