A 19-year-old girl was shot at and hit on the head with a pistol butt by her husband in Mansarovar Park on Wednesday. The police said Sunny Grover (26) was angry with Nanci as she had refused to live with him.

“Nanci sustained superficial injuries on her back,” a senior police officer said. Grover then allegedly hit Nanci on the head with his .312 bore country-made pistol. He tried to flee the spot but bystanders caught him and handed him over to the police.

Police officials said Grover and Nanci had eloped on January 29 earlier this year and got married. But Nanci went back to her maternal home in West Rohtash Nagar in March,after their parents put pressure on the couple. “They had recently filed for divorce. Grover,however,had been asking Nanci to live with him,saying the divorce proceedings were initiated just to satisfy their parents,” a senior police official said.
