Teen shot dead by relative in Delhi home

New Delhi, May 10 (IANS) An 18-year-old girl, awaiting her Class 12 results, was shot dead Friday morning by a distant relative who barged into her home in south Delhi's Munirka locality and pumped a bullet into her chest, police said.

Pinki alias Sakhi was killed around 10.45 a.m. when the accused, believed to be a distant relative in his early 20s, strode into the house in the congested Buddh Vihar area in Munirka with a gun, police said.

After a few minutes, the accused opened fire and fled from the scene. Pinki's aunt, present in another room of the house, rushed on hearing the sound of gunfire to find her lying in a pool of blood.

"The girl was lying in a pool of blood. We called the police and took her to Safdurjung hospital where she was declared dead on arrival," Bheesham, 30, a neighbour, told IANS.

A bullet had been pumped into her chest, Bheesham said.

Pinki's father Pritam is a plumber and mother Rani a domestic help. At the time of the incident, both had gone to work at the Jawaharlal Nehru University nearby.

She was their only child and was waiting for her Class 12 results.

Police said the accused who lives in Delhi had been identified but his name was not being disclosed.

"Several teams have been formed to nab the accused. He will be in the police net soon," said Deputy Commissioner of Police B.S. Jaiswal.
