Police booked two men for firing shots in the air to threaten other paying guests (PGs) at the Aman resort in Balongi on Monday night.

The defendants have been identified as Gora and Natha, both residing in Nawanshahr, Punjab.

They were booked on the complaint of Vivek Kumar, from Himachal Pradesh, who lives in the same PG accommodation as the accused.

Kumar said on Monday evening that he returned from his hometown with his uncle, who left after some time. As he was going upstairs with a friend, they encountered Gora and Natha, who hurled abuse at them, causing an altercation.

Suddenly, Gora opened fire in the air and threatened to kill them. Kumar called his uncle back and they filed a complaint with the police as a result of which a case under Section 336 (act endangering the life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code and of the Weapons Act was registered at the Balongi police station. The two defendants are on the run.
