A sub-inspector posted at Indergarh Police Station in Gwalior district of Madhya Pradesh on Thursday shot dead a woman with his service revolver in Chhatarpur after she allegedly turned down his love proposal yet again.
The policeman, identified as Ravendra Singh Bundela (30), was in love with the 22-year-old law student who happens to be his relative Ajay Singh Bundela's daughter, Chhattarpur Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Neeraj Pandey told reporters.
