Delhi: He shot her dead to prove gun was real
After being on the run for two days, a man who 'accidentally' shot a woman in Shahdara's Dilshad Garden was finally arrested on Friday. The accused, Sunny, told cops that he opened fire to prove to the victim that his weapon was a real gun. Another woman, in whose house the incident occurred, was also interrogated, who echoed it was an "accidental firing".
During questioning, Sunny said both of them were at the Dilshad Garden residence of one Usha, who runs a boutique out of her place. He was in a drunken stupor, when the victim Nishti teased him about his weapon, saying it wasn't real. Sunny got offended and opened fire, a bullet of which hit Nishti's stomach and she fell down.
Stunned, Sunny, Usha and a couple of other friends rushed Nishti to a private hospital and then to Swami Dayanand Hospital, where they told authorities she was suffering from some health issue. She died during the course of treatment, after which a medical examination was conducted where the bullet injury was revealed. Hospital authorities informed the police but by then Sunny had already fled.
Cops through investigation learnt that Usha knew both Sunny and Nishti. While Sunny was a Delhi resident who deals in car accessories, Nishti had come to Delhi from West Bengal just three days before the incident. Her autopsy has been done, confirmed cops.
