NSG commando shoots wife, sister-in-law, then kills himself

The commando, named Jitendra Yadav, was a permanent ASI of the Border Security Force.

A National Security Guard (NSG) commando has allegedly shot his wife and sister-in-law and has then committed suicide at his Maneser camp's flat on Tuesday morning.

The commando, named Jitendra Yadav (a native of Kanpur), was a permanent ASI of the Border Security Force.

He is on deputation for five years in the NSG and was currently deployed at Maneser camp for the last couple of years. Local police received information about the shoot out at flat number 42 of the NSG camp.

"After we reached the spot, we found all three lying on the floor. It appeared during investigation that Jitendra had shot his wife Gudan and sister-in-law Khusboo, 18, following some argument, and then shot himself on the head with a automatic service pistol," said inspector Rahul Kumar, the investigating officer in the case.

Gunjan and Khusboo, who were sustaining gunshot injuries in their stomach, had to undergo surgeries. The sisters are currently under observation in the ICU after the surgeries. According to reports, although the women are out of danger now, they are still unable to give statements to the police.

"We are waiting for both of them to recover. We will record their statements only after that to know the reason that prompted Jitendra to take such an extreme step," Kumar said.
