A 25-year-old woman was killed Tuesday and her father critically injured after her husband allegedly shot at them outside the Karkardooma Metro station in east Delhi, a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) official said.

"The incident took place around 12.10 p.m. outside the Karkardooma Metro station. Five empty cartridges and a double-barrel rifle have been recovered from the spot," a CISF official told IANS.

The official added that the accused is on the run. He fled the spot after the shooting, leaving his car outside the Metro station.


"The woman, Deepti, and her father, 55-year-old Bishan Das, were shot from behind," the official said.

Deepti was rushed to the Deepak Memorial Hospital where she was declared brought dead.
Bishen Das is undergoing treatment at the Hedgewar Arogya Sansthan Hospital. He is a resident of Chirag Dilli in south Delhi. He told police that there was a marital discord between Deepti and her husband.

"Passenger services were not affected," a Delhi Metro official said.
The CISF looks after security at all Delhi Metro stations.
