A day after a man was shot dead in broad daylight on the Bhimtal-Haldwani motor road, the police have caught a woman reported to be his former lover and a man for the murder. Addressing the media in the Bhimtal police station on Friday, ASP Rajiv Mohan informed that the police seized one firearm and bloodied clothes from the murder accused man. The police had formed two teams which managed to solve the case within 11 hours of the murder.
The ASP said that after Nazim’s marriage, his former lover had still remained attached to him. This angered the woman’s current partner Radheshyam. So he allegedly plotted along with the woman to finish him off. As planned, the woman rode pillion with Nazim and reached Saldi area where Radheshyam was waiting. He entered into an argument with Nazim who removed his helmet during the verbal exchange. The other man then allegedly shot him point blank in the head before escaping from the scene. Mohan said that initially, the woman involved in the crime tried to misguide the police but she later broke down. She later said that she was still in love with Nazim and was under stress after his marriage. She also said that she had been disappointed as Nazim was not paying much attention to her after his marriage.
