Sandeep Nangal Ambian, a Kabaddi player, killed during a match in Jalandhar
On Monday evening, a renowned international kabaddi player was shot dead during a kabaddi tournament match at Jalandhar’s Mallian Khurd (Nivin Mallian). Sandeep Singh Sandhu aka Sandeep Nangal Ambian has been identified as the victim (38).
Between 6:15 and 6:30 p.m., the incident occurred. Sandeep had travelled with his team to take part in a match that was scheduled to begin later that evening. Unidentified assailants opened fire on Sandeep as he exited the tournament site, killing him on the spot, according to reports. A teen boy was also hurt, but he is no longer in danger. Satinder Singh, SSP (Rural), Jalandhar, arrived on the scene shortly after the incident. According to police, the incident could have been caused by a personal feud or professional jealousy.
People ran out of the ground to save their lives as soon as the bullets were fired, according to the videos of the incident. Sandeep was the head of the Major Kabaddi League Federation and one of the top five Kabaddi players in the world. In various Kabaddi World Cup tournaments, he captained the United Kingdom team.
Sandeep’s parents, wife, and two sons survive him. He used to live in the United Kingdom and would travel to India every winter to compete in kabaddi tournaments. According to sources in the Kabaddi industry, there is a lot of money in the sport, and several gangsters are involved, dictating which team players should play for. “A murder case has been filed against unidentified individuals.” “People in the area are in a state of shock and panic as a result of the incident,” said Inspector Parminder Singh of the Nakodar Sadar police station’s Station House Officer (SHO).
