Delhi woman shot dead in front of husband, 1-yr-old son”

A woman was shot dead in her vehicle by unidentified assailants in Delhi's Shalimar Bagh on early Wednesday morning. The woman identified as Priya Mehra was travelling with her husband Pankaj Mehra and one-year-old son in their Maruti Ritz auto when the incident took place.

The reason for the murder is not yet clear, though there are claims that the incident comes in light after a robbery incident that the woman had protested against. On their way, they stopped at Bangla Sahib Gurdwara and when they reached jail road three men intercepted their vehicle and broke the window with a pistol butt.

Further details are awaited. Priya's family allege negligence by both the hospital authorities and police.

Priya Mehra suffered bullet wounds on her neck and face, the police said. "Uncle escaped unhurt from the spot". Pankaj told police that the pistol's trigger then jammed, and the attacker got into his auto and fled.He then made a PCR call and reached Saroj Hospital in Shalimar Bagh.

Police said that Priya was Pankaj's second wife and that their son was sleeping in the vehicle when he shot her.

Pankaj also told police that he committed the crime as he wanted to get back to his ex-wife and thus shot his wife Priya while she was sleeping in the auto. Delhi Police is yet to recover the weapon used in the killing. The CCTV footage in the area too is being scanned, said sources.
