A 19-year-old man shot himself dead after killing another man on Saturday and wounding his family members, police said.
Senior Superintendent of Police Dinesh Prabhu said according to the preliminary investigation, it was a case of a failed love affair.
Accused Rinku Gangwar, a resident of Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly district, was allegedly in a relationship with Rachna Gangwar (22), but her parents arranged her marriage to another person.
This angered Rinku, who stormed into Rachna’s house in Sirsa village that morning, and attacked her and her mother Maya Devi, 50, with a sharp-edged weapon.
When Rachna’s brother Ravindrapal (28) intervened, Rinku apparently shot him dead. He then ran away from their home and opened fire on himself, about 20 meters away. He died instantly, police said.
Rachna and Maya were admitted to the hospital, they added.
