NEW-DELHI: A bride was shot at in Rohtak while she was going home with her husband on Wednesday just hours after her wedding,
The bride, Tanishka, a resident of Sampla village got married to Mohan, a resident of Bhali-Anandpur village on December 1. The incident took place in Bhali-Anandpur village when the couple was going home and Mohan’s brother was driving the car.
Mohan said in a statement, “When we reached near the Shiv temple around 11.30 pm, an Innova that was chasing us for quite some time, overtook our vehicle and blocked our way. Three people were seated in the Innova and two men got out of the car carrying revolvers and asked Sunil to open our car door. They took the car keys, fired multiple gunshots at Tanishka. When Sunil tried to intervene, they assaulted him and even snatched his gold chain. They fled after firing gunshots in the air. Tanishka was admitted to Rohtak’s PGIMS where her condition is stated to be critical.”
Following his complaint, an FIR was registered under relevant IPC sections and provisions of the Arms Act with the Bahuakbarpur police against one Sahil and two other unidentified accused. Investigations revealed those four hours before the shooting; the accused had snatched a car from a local businessman and used it to commit the crime. Later, they abandoned the car at a dhaba near a bus-stand.
Rohtak SP Uday Singh Meena constituted six police teams to nab the absconding accused.
