Hooghly: In a dreaded incident, a youth has shot dead his estranged girlfriend and has injured her parents in a suburb of Kolkata today evening.

The incident took place at Konnagar in Hooghly district, some 22-km from Kolkata. The victim has been identified as Subhalanga Chakraborty, in her 30’s. Her injured parents are Tushar and Subhra Chakraborty.

Subhalanga was reportedly into an affair with Sultan Ali for the last few months. However, with her family objecting to the relationship, she started avoiding Sultan of late.

Sultan failed to take this easily. Around 7.30 this evening, he stormed into Subhalanga’s residence near Konnagar Olympic Ground and shot her in the forehead from a pistol. Subhalanga’s parents tried to overpower Sultan but he hit them with the butt of the pistol and fled.

Hearing cries from the family, neighbours rushed in and took the three to Uttarpara State General Hospital. Subhalanga was declared dead on arrival; her parents are admitted now.

Subsequent to this, a team from Uttarpara police station managed to arrest accused Sultan. Police are interrogating him to find out the exact motive behind the dreaded murder.
