The incident took place at around 2 am at the Raman Reti area in Vrindavan, they said.

"Saurav (28), nephew of former Uttar Pradesh Minister Tejpal Singh, shot 26-year-old Leela, daughter of Susan, a resident of Perth in Australia, following an altercation between them," Senior Superintendent of Police of Mathura R K Chaturvedi said.

Saurav then committed suicide by firing a shot with a revolver on his temple, he said.

Leela was rushed to a hospital in Agra where her condition was stated to be critical, Chaturvedi said, adding the revolver and a car, belonging to Saurav's father Makkhan Singh, has been seized.

The girl was living in the Vrindavan for past five years along with her two brothers.
