After they asked him not to visit their home, he got angry and purchased an illegal pistol for Rs 40,000 to kill her.
Yesterday, all the accused consumed a lot of liquor. After they spotted her returning from coaching class, they allegedly pumped bullets into her head, killing her on the spot.
The SP has announced a reward of Rs 5,000 to the entire police team for solving the murder case in a very short time.
