According to reports, Parmish has been getting death threats since a while now, as a source close to him revealed to Times of India, “Parmish has been getting ransom calls for two months now. Since we had many shows lined up, we could not cancel them, so he had informed the police in Mohali about the calls. They were kept in the loop about the ransom calls and Parmish had been following what the police had told him to do while dealing with such calls.” (ALSO READ – Shocking!

But what exactly happened that night? The source futher added to the daily, “On Friday, after midnight (12.30am on Saturday – April 14), Parmish and his team and bouncers left for his home. A Hyundai Creta began following them, but the bouncers and his team did not pay much attention to the car as they thought that it was just some fans who must be chasing Parmish for selfies. So they ignored it. His team and bouncers stopped at Parmish’s house and after the payment was made to the bouncers, they left. Since Parmish had not eaten anything after the gig, he, his brother and Laadi decided to go to JW Marriot to eat. As they were heading to the hotel, they noticed that the same car was following them again. At first they increased the speed of their car, but the car kept chasing them. As soon as they were going to enter Sector 91, the chasing car came very close to them and they fired a few bullets.” (ALSO READ – Parmish Verma’s alleged shooter Dilpreet Singh says that the Punjabi singer is lucky to be alive)
The source mentioned that the attack was meant to kill Parmish, but since the cars were moving, the bullet hit Parmish’s knee. Another bullet hit Laadi’s knee and luckily they escaped. “They managed to reach the highway, but then the car stopped because a bullet had perhaps hit one of the tyres. The assailants’ car was still coming after them. They managed to hide somewhere and then called the SSP, who reached the location quickly and took them all to Fortis hospital,” revealed the source.
