Chand Kaur, 88, wife of late Namdhari sect head guru Jagjit Singh who was attacked at Bhaini Sahib, headquarters of Namdhari religious sect near Ludhiana, succumb to injuries at Apollo Hospital on Monday.

Two unidentified persons on a motorbike opened fire on her. Eye witnesses told police that almost five rounds were fired. Reportedly, she got two bullet injuries in abdomen and forehead. Both the miscreants managed to flee from the spot soon after opening fire on Chand Kaur.

Following the death of her husband Jagjit Singh in 2012, Chand Kaur had supported her nephew Thakur Uday Singh as successor of the gaddi (highest guru seat). The opposite faction wanted Thakur Dilip Singh, brother of Uday Singh to be declared as successor.

The opposite faction had argued that Jagjit Singh had adopted Dilip Singh as his son and thus he should be his successor. But Chand Kaur had supported Uday Singh
