Caught On Cam: Agra Man Shoots Up Woman’s House for Rejecting Him
The victim alleges the attacker falsely claims the two are married and that he has struck her several times before.
A young woman in Agra has complained about a gun-attack on her at her house by a man obsessed with her, despite her turning down his overtures. The incident has been caught on camera. The unmarried victim says her attacker is still at large and that he has been telling the police that the two have been married.
The CCTV footage shows a man approaching the entrance of a house from the street side and quickly opening fire before turning tail and fleeing. Police say the victim and the harasser even had an altercation at the police station.
The victim alleges the man had led her away with him at gunpoint several times and fearing for the lives of her family members, she was forced to go with him. But she denies having married him.
