Woman shot dead in Delhi, cops say personal animosity behind murder

New Delhi: A 25-year-old woman died after being shot thrice by two bike-borne youths here Sunday night, police said. Both the attackers have been arrested.

According to a police official, the woman, identified as Pooja, resident of Bhajanpura in east Delhi, was standing near the Sarai Kale Khan inter-state bus terminal in south Delhi when she was shot. She was taken to the AIIMS Trauma Centre where she died of her bullet injuries.

The two youths, Munshi Yadav and Rehman, who are residents of Abu Fazal Enclave in Jamia Nagar, were apprehended by the people at the spot and handed over to police.

Police on Monday said that personal animosity was the reason behind the murder.

Police sources said that she was murdered by a man called Munshi Yadav, who was allegedly upset with her as she was creating problems in his relationship with her friend Kiran.

"Munshi Yadav, who murdered the woman, wanted to marry her friend Kiran. He said Pooja was creating hurdles in the relationship, which had led to arguments several times," a police official said.

According to police, Pooja was accompanied by her live-in partner Manoj at the time. She had a loud argument with Yadav, after which he shot her.

Yadav, and another man named Rehman who accompanied him, were also arrested.
