A 22 year old girl was shot dead in Mohali Phase 5 after she refused a marriage proposal of boy who’d been asking her to marry. The victim has been identified as Amandeep Kaur who lives in Dholewal village in Ferozepur. She was shot 3 times in the head, heart, and addomen.
The suspect has been identified as Gurmeet Singh who lives in Razzowala village in Ferozepur.
Mohali SSP GS Bhullar said “At the time of the incident, she was being accompanied by her three friends, who also belonged to the Ferozepore area”, said the SSP.
“Her friends told us that the accused was pressing Amandeep to marry him and she told him that her parents would not be ready to marry her off to him as they did not belong to the same caste”, said SSP Bhullar.
Amandeep Kaur was doing a course of PHP development in Sector 45 and had completed an MCA course earlier in the year.
She was taken to the hospital after being shot where she was declared dead and her body was taken to civil hospital for postmortem examination.
A case under Section 302 of the IPC and 25 and 27 of the Arms Act has been registered on the complaint of the victim’s friend, Navneet Kaur, against Gurmit Singh at the Phase I police station, here.
