Bhopal: In a tragic incident reported from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, a 50-year-old woman died of heart attack after a man allegedly held her son, aged 14 years, at gunpoint.
How it happened
The deceased, identified as Deepa, was a resident of Bairagarh locality. One Veerumal Ahuja lives adjacent in the house adjacent to hers. O Wednesday night, a heated argument flared up between Deepa’s minor son, a Class 9 student, and Ahuja’s son-in-law, identified as Manish Ochani, after the latter parked his car outside the former’s house. Soon Ahuja and his daughter Sonal (Ochani’s wife) also joined the argument.
Hearing the noise, Deepa and her husband rushed out of their house and the argument escalated further. Suddenly Ochani pointed a gun at Deepa’s son, threatening to shoot him dead. Seeing this, Deepa suffered a heart attack and collapsed. She was taken two hospitals, but both refused to admit her, citing lack of facilities for her treatment.
Her family then rushed her to Hamidia Hospital, where she medics pronounced her dead on arrival. Following this, police were informed and a case was registered against Ahuja, his daughter Sonal and her husband Ochani, and Deepa’s was sent for post-mortem examination, according to a report by The Times of India.
So far, no arrests have been made in the case, police said, adding that Sonal has claimed that the gun her husband pointed at the teenager was a toy gun. Investigations into the case are underway.
