A 21-year-old girl student was shot dead allegedly by two youths outside the Aggarwal college here on Monday.
The accused managed to flee after the murder. Though the cause of the murder is yet to be ascertained, the police have launched a manhunt to nab the culprits.
The incident took place around 3.30 pm when the victim Nikita, a final year student of the B.Com course in the college, had come out after appearing in the exam.
According to reports, the accused after a verbal duel tried to pull the girl inside a vehicle parked near the gate of the college in order to abduct her but as she resisted, one of the accused pulled out a revolver and fired at her.
As the accused fled from the spot, the victim, a resident of SGM Nagar here, was declared brought dead, when shifted to a hospital.
“One of the accused identified as Tausif hailing from Sohna was known to the victim and a complaint against him had been lodged by the victim’s kin a few months ago for harassment and molestation but a compromise had been reached,” said Jaiveer Rathi, ACP, Ballabgarh.
