Cops said the defendant’s marriage to his wife Ruchika, 31, had been in trouble for a few months. Police also said Ruchika left her husband’s house a week before the event and was living with her mother, Sarita.
Cops say Gaurav drove to his mother-in-law’s home on Monday night and shot into the wall of a room. He then brought Ruchika with him to his home.
According to a senior official at Sagarpur Police Station, Gaurav fired the bullet in the general direction of Sarita and threatened her with a gun.
“A case has been filed under IPC Section 307, as well as the Arms Act,” said Manoj C, DCP (South West).
DCP said the angle of duress in Ruchika’s return, as well as other details of the event, will be fully probed.
