Popular Punjabi singer Parmish Verma, who was shot at by unidentified persons in Mohali last month, described the attack as "purely a threat of extortion", saying he had no enmity with anyone.
Parmish and his friend were shot at by around five unidentified armed assailants on the night of April 13 in Mohali.
In a Facebook post today, the pop singer said, "There is something I wanted to clear the air about. The incident that took place was purely a threat for extortion. I have no enmity with anyone."
"I have never been involved directly or indirectly with people. I am falsely being associated with by certain media and social media channels."
The singer popular for his song 'Gaal Nee Kadhnai' also thanked people for their love and concern.
"I am feeling much better now. It is my heartfelt appeal to not drag anyone's family or any of their family members into this. Families are valued and treasured by everyone alike. It can be extremely tormenting for a family to go through times like these. Please do not treat them unjustly. I don't want any family to endure what my family has. I pray no other mother suffers like mine has," he posted.
After the singer was attacked, a Facebook page claiming to be that of gangster Dilpreet Singh, had put up a post saying he had shot at the singer.
