The man, identified as history-sheeter Ramu Goswami, has been booked on charges of attempt to murder and under sections of the Arms Act. The TOI report adds that the woman suffered serious injury near the nose as the bullet pierced through her face and came out from near the ear. Police said that the woman is conscious and police recorded her statement as well. The complainant, Sushila Ahire, sister-in-law of the victim, lodged a complaint and told the cops that she and Sangita were sitting on a bench near a temple when Goswami came near them and struck a conversation.
Describing the incident, the complainant said Goswami said it was his birthday and asked the women to bless him. Following this, Ahire tried to ignore him first as she did not know him, but when he showed the gun, she casually inquired if it was working. Soon after, Goswami suddenly fired one round from the weapon. Police has begun a probe to know why he fired at her.
The bullet has been seized and the cops have launched a manhunt for Goswami. Meanwhile, Ahire will undergo surgery for the injuries,” AM Parmar, assistant commissioner of police, B-division was quoted in the report.
