Residing in Shastri Nagar colony of Meerut BJP leader Kuldeep Tomar on Friday allegedly shot his wife after a heated argument. The wife was seriously injured and admitted to the hospital thereafter. She succumbed to her injuries later on Friday night.
Tomar runs a real estate business in Shastri Nagar. It was reported that around 10 pm on Friday the couple had a heated argument with his wife Poonam, after which he shot her at the back of her head with a licenced revolver.
It was also reported that immediately after shooting his wife, he tried shooting himself too,
but failed as his nephew at the spot of the incident, snatched the revolver from Tomar’s hand.
The relatives of Tomar’s wife are reaching Meerut, after which an FIR is likely to be filed against him.
Meanwhile, police sources said that Tomar has fled after this incident and is on the run.
