The bullet hit Puja’s head and she fell on the ground bleeding profusely.
After sometime, Puja’s younger sister Tamanna came searching for her and was shocked to see Puja lying in a pool of blood. She immediately shouted for help resulting in neighbours rushing to Sumit’s house. In the meantime, Sumit fled the spot. Injured Puja was rushed to Trauma Centre where she succumbed to her injuries.
