Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE - Leena Dhankhar

GU­RU­GRAM: The wife of an ad­di­tional ses­sions judge died and their son was strug­gling for life af­ter be­ing shot on Satur­day af­ter­noon by their per­sonal se­cu­rity of­fi­cer (PSO), who claimed that he felt he had been “pos­sessed” at the time he fired his ser­vice re­volver, the po­lice said.

The PSO, who left the scene of crime at Ar­ca­dia mar­ket in Gu­ru­gram’s Sec­tor 49 without be­ing chal­lenged by the throng of on­look­ers who filmed the in­ci­dent on their mo­bile phone cam­eras, was ar­rested two hours af­ter the shoot­ing from the Gu­ru­gram-farid­abad road.

The vic­tims, Ritu Sharma (38) and Dhruv Sharma (18), suf­fered gun­shot in­juries in the chest and head, re­spec­tively, and were rushed to a pri­vate hospi­tal, where the woman suc­cumbed a few hours later.

The PSO fired five rounds – three at Dhruv and two at his mother. No bul­lets were found in them, and only exit and en­try wounds were re­ported.
