A day after Neha Bansal, the 22-year-old MBA graduate who was shot at outside her home in outer Delhi’s Narela by three bike-borne assailants, investigators are suspecting role of someone known to the victim behind the incident.
While Neha’s family members assert that the assailants wanted to kidnap her or rob her car, police are investigating the case from different angles, including revenge. Neha had sustained two gunshot injuries — one in her waist and another in her arm — and is battling for her life in a hospital. She has been put on life support and her condition is stated to be critical, a senior police officer said.
On Sunday, around 8.30pm, Neha had just stepped out of her Hyundai i-20 car after parking it outside her home when three men on a motorcycle arrived and asked her to sit inside the car. When she refused and started shouting, one of the miscreants fired two bullets at her and escaped on the motorcycle with his accomplices.
P Karunakaran, additional DCP (outer) said, ''We are not ruling out any angle, but it is unlikely that miscreants fired on the victim just to rob the car. All the possibilities in the case are being investigated.''
However, Neha’s father Narendra Bansal said she had never told them that she was facing any threat from anyone. ''Neha completed her MBA one year ago through distance education. She did not have many friends and we are sure that she was not involved in any sort of tussle for which someone would take revenge,'' said Bansal.
