New Delhi: A 30-year-old Delhi Police sub-inspector on Sunday morning shot dead a woman and then committed suicide in a park situated in Delhi’s south west region. While the 27-year-old woman died on the spot, the cop succumbed to injuries later in the evening after undergoing treatment at All India Institute Of Medical Science. Both of them are said to be married and were having ‘issues’ with their respective spouses.
The sub inspector, identified as Vijendra Bishnoi, was allegedly in a relationship with the deceased woman named Nikki Chauhan for over a year now and carried out the violent act following a dispute with her. While the woman, who worked as a stringer for a local news channel had filed for divorce, Vijendra’s wife, who lives in Rajasthan, had also lodged complaints against him several times accusing him of domestic abuse.
“The concerned officer was having some domestic issues and was not even coming to work for the past 15 days. Last night he finally joined back and requested issuance of his service revolver along with 10 rounds of bullets,” said a senior police officer. The sub-inspector was posted in Ranhola police station of west Delhi.
