Wife of the Gurgaon-based additional sessions judge who was shot at by his gunman on Saturday has died during her treatment. She and her son was son was shot by the policeman in broad daylight on a busy road in Sector 49, Gurgaon.

The deceased, Ritu, was being treated at Medanta Hospital. She had sustained two bullet injuries. Her son is being treated upon.

Police have arrested the gunman, Mahipal. He was working as the judge’s security guard for the past one-and-a-half-year.

Meanwhile, the police have formed a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the matter. The SIT will be headed by a deputy superintendent of police-rank officer. It will also have two SPs and four inspectors in it.

Some locals informed the police about gunshots being fired outside the Arcadia market. When a police team reached the spot, they found Ritu and Dhruv lying in a pool of blood

The police said the incident occurred at around 3.30 pm yesterday when Ritu and Dhruv had gone shopping in the Arcadia market. They were accompanied by the judge’s guard Mahipal.

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED

After shooting, Mahipal tried to drag and put Dhruv in the car.

According to a witness, Mahipal was seen brandishing his revolver with which he also threatened the crowd telling them not to help Dhruv.

Accused Mahipal then escaped from the spot in the car and reached Sadar police station. Upon reaching there, he opened fire there also when the SHO tried to capture him but in vain.

This incident raises questions on the police’s role as Mahipal was a constable in the Gurugram Police and was posted with judge and his family, by the police, for security reasons.

When asked about Mahipal’s motive, the police sources told India Today that the accused was mentally unstable because of which he resorted to such an act.
