Delhi man attempts to kill girlfriend by shooting at her right leg after a heated argument
Following a heated argument with his girlfriend over her drinking habit, a 22-year-old man has been arrested by Delhi police for attempting to murder her.

According to the police, the accused, Bunty Grover, allegedly shot his girlfriend's right leg in the early hours of Monday. The incident took place at the girl's residence situated at Moti Nagar in New Delhi.

Soon after this incident, the accused called the police and lied to them about the whole case by claiming that his girlfriend, whose name is Piya Malhotra, had been shot by chain snatchers during a bid of chain-snatching, the police revealed.

"He claimed that four armed persons snatched a gold chain from his wife and also fired at her near Dhaula Kuan flyover," said the police.

Later, when the cops cross examined about his claims, they found several contradictions in his statement. However, after treatment at Safdarjang Hospital, Piya told the police that it was Bunty who had tried to kill her by shooting at her leg.

"There were gaps in the chain of events that was narrated to us by Bunty. He was asked where exactly the snatching-cum-shooting had taken place. We asked him to take us to a place where she was shot and he led us to a location, which was far from the spot he had claimed the incident had taken place in the PCR call. Also asked to share details such as when and from where the couple had left or where they were returning to, he gave different answers each time," said DCP (southwest) Milind Dumbere.

During the police interrogation, cops also found that Bunty had already had a previous criminal record and had been jailed for some time too in connection with another crime.

Police also informed that Bunty wanted Piya to quit her drinking habit, which she was not ready to do and hence, he had taken such a step.
