A 19-year-old student shot dead a woman classmate before turning the gun on himself in the presence of teacher and other students at GDS Degree College in Taapal police station area of Aligarh Wednesday. Police said that prima facie the incident appeared to be a fallout of one-sided love and the boy shot the girl after being spurned.
The victims have been identified as Sandeep Kumar, a first-year student of BSc, and Neha, 18. While Sandep was a resident of Kampalpur village, Neha belonged to Bharatpur village — both in Tappal.
Eyewitnesses told the police that Sandeep and Neha had entered into an argument in the morning. Both died on the spot. Some students told the police that Sandeep liked Neha but she never responded to his proposals.
SSP Aligarh, Love Kumar, said prima facie it appeared that the incident was the fallout of one-sided love.
