Man shoots at couple, self in a love triangle
The son of a CISF constable shot at a couple hailing from Guwahati before shooting himself near Siri Fort auditorium in South Delhi on Saturday night. All of them remained unfit for statement till late Sunday evening.
The incident took place at around 10 pm on Saturday when the couple Rajinder (32) and 27-year-old Sakshi (name changed) decided to meet in a park near Siri Fort auditorium. The couple had got married in 2009 in Guwahati and was living there. Their parents were unaware of the marriage, police said.
During investigation, it was learnt that the couple were having marital discords for last few year and in 2015, Sakshi created a profile on a matrimonial website and wanted to get married again. A few months ago, she met one Kajal Jatin Sarkar (34) on the matrimonial site and started interacting with him. When the duo allegedly developed feelings for each other, Sakshi revealed about her marriage. Initially Kajal became angry but eventually the duo started talking again, police said.
On October 2, Sakshi came to Delhi for a training at NCUI where she met Sarkar who lived with his family in Dwarka area. On Saturday, after learning about Sakshi’s matrimonial profile, Rajinder came to Delhi and met Sakshi. She told her husband about Sarkar and after having a heated argument, she called Sarkar in the same park to meet her husband.
Sarkar came to the park along with his friend and according to Sarkar’s friend identified as Arun, the park was isolated and there were no lights. It was learnt that Sarkar came with a service revolver
of his father and after an argument or scuffle, he shot at Rajinder and Sakshi before shooting himself.
“After hearing three gunshots, Arun rushed to the spot and found all three of them lying unconscious. He then made a call to the police control room,” a police official said quoting Arun’s statement.
All three of them were rushed to AIIMS trauma centre where they were operated. On Sunday, they were declared out of danger but they remained unfit for statement till late evening.
