A cop shot dead a man with his service revolver apparently because he was upset at his daughter’s marriage to the victim’s son, police said today.
Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Ram Lal entered into the house of Ravinder Kumar at Ban Sultan area of Miran Sahib in Jammu city and fired at him from his revolver around 13:00 hours today, a senior police officer said.
Lal fired four shots at Kumar while his wife Soma Devi also received injuries when she jumped from the roof-top in an attempt to save her husband, he said.
Both were shifted to a hospital where doctors declared Kumar as brought dead, he said.
“We have registered a case and apprehended the accused police officer along with weapon of offence. Further investigation is going on,” SP Headquarters Ramesh Kotwal said.—GK
