New Delhi: Woman shot dead by husband

A 29-year-old woman was killed and her father critically injured after her husband fired at them at the entrance of east Delhi’s Karkardooma metro station on Tuesday. The accused is yet to be arrested, police said.

Deepti lived with her parents at Chirag Dilli in south Delhi and was involved in a divorce case with her husband, Pawan, a resident of New Usmanpur.

Police said the shooting happened when Deepti and her 55-year-old father, Bishan Das, were returning home after a hearing in the case at Karkardooma court.

Deepti and Pawan had a quarrel after the hearing, following which Deepti and her father left for the Metro station in a rickshaw. Pawan followed them in his Maruti Alto car.

“Pawan was aware of their routine and was waiting outside the station. He followed them and shot them from behind when they were on an escalator on the ground floor of the station at 12:10 pm,” a police officer said.
