Bangalore, May, 31: Karnataka's Director General of Police Ajai Kumar Singh claimed on Monday, May 31 that the firing incident at Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's ashram in Bangalore on Sunday was not directed towards the spiritual guru.

"I won't call this an attack on Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The incident happened five minutes after Sri Sri Ravi Shankar left," said Singh while addressing the press conference after the attack in the morning.

Singh said that he came to this conclusion based on the facts he had got whereas the ashram authorities said the attack was meant to harm the spiritual guru.

"The bullet could have been aimed high that is why there were no casualties. The trajectory was not flat. It doesn't look like a country made gun. It's probably a factory made gun," said Singh

A disciple of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Vinay was injured in the firing as the gunman escaped after the firing at around 6 pm near the ashram.
