Town mayor shot with a crossbow; HUNTED.

A GANG who ambushed a Labour deputy mayor and shot him with a crossbow was being hunted last night.

The men waited in a car outside the home of Cllr Joginder Bal, 50, who was found by police on the ground and "bleeding profusely" in the quiet residential street.

Mr Bal, deputy mayor of Slough borough council since May, was still in hospital last night after being treated for an arm injury.

Officers said Mr Bal, a prominent Sikh councillor first elected in June 2001, was attacked in the town at 8pm on Sunday.

The council said yesterday: "Everyone here is extremely distressed to hear about the attack. We wish Cllr Bal a rapid recovery and our thoughts are with his family."
