Ruchi Chauhan,a 24-year-old trainer at the IGI airport,allegedly shot herself with a country-made pistol following a quarrel with her husband at their Acharya Puri residence on Sunday morning. The couple,who have a five-month-old son,were having a strained relationship after husband Gaurav started suspecting his wife was having an affair,said DCP (West) Ved Prakash.
We have found a suicide note at the crime scene. We have sent the body for post mortem to ascertain the cause of her death, said the DCP. Gaurav has been booked for abetment to suicide and under the Arms Act,for bringing home an illegal gun,on the complaint of Ruchis father,said the police. Gaurav,who does not have a job,has been named in many criminal cases in the area,though he was later on acquitted in all of them. The couple got married in 2007 after a two-year courtship.
