New Delhi: A 28-year-old woman’s body was found next to her baby at her house in east Delhi’s Vish­was Na­gar on Wed­nes­day morn­ing. The body had bul­let wounds. Po­lice have de­tained her hus­band and are ques­tion­ing her inlaws. The woman’s fam­ily al­leges that she was mur­dered.

DCP (Shah­dara) Amit Sharma said that the woman, Shivangi, worked as a teacher at a pri­vate school in Dil­shad Gar­den. Po­lice re­ceived a call on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon from her hus­band, Prashant, about her death.

Po­lice said that Shivangi and Prashant got mar­ried over a year ago. She used to work as a teacher while Prashant used to work at a shop near her house. They had met at his shop, fallen in love and de­cided to get mar­ried.

Shivangi had quit her job in April while she was ex­pect­ing her daugh­ter, who was born last month. He fam­ily mem­bers said that Shivangi did not men­tion be­ing ill-treated by her in-laws but had re­duced her in­ter­ac­tion with her par­ents.

“She was a strong woman and it is un­likely that she would com­mit sui­cide,” said Ra­jiv Narula, Shivangi’s fa­ther.

Ac­cord­ing to Prashant, no one in his fam­ily had heard the gun­shot, and Shivangi was ly­ing in a pool of blood in their room. He told the cops that he was sleep­ing when the in­ci­dent happened, and the body was dis­cov­ered by his fam­ily.

Po­lice said that they re­ceived a com­plaint from the woman’s fam­ily, based on which an in­quiry is be­ing con­ducted. “We have regis­tered a case of mur­der,” said Sharma.

The SDM has been in­formed about the in­ci­dent, and a mag­is­te­rial in­quiry has been or­dered. Po­lice said that they have not re­ceived any com­plaint of marital ha­rass­ment from Shivangi or her fam­ily in the past.
