The victim, identified as Nikki Chauhan, lived with her husband in Uttam Nagar.

According to sources, she was a small time reporter and reportedly came in touch with Vijender when he was posted at Uttam Nagar police station a few years ago.

The two allegedly had an affair but ultimately married different people. According to sources, the woman was of late demanding money from Singh, failing which she threatened to lodge a rape complaint against him, sources added.

This, sources said, led to a spat between the two and the enraged sub-inspector shot her and then tried to end his life as well. Singh is recuperating at the hospital.
