In a love story gone sour, a police constable in Hyderabad on Monday tried to kill his woman colleague and himself. Both are battling for life in a hospital right now.

Police said constable Srinivas fired one round at Lalita in Kukatpally police station, a major subrub of state capital city Hyderabad. Even as other policemen present there overpowered him, Srinivas managed to shoot himself.

Both were taken to a local hospital in a critical condition and were later shifted to Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad.

A police officer said that Srinivas told his colleagues before opening fire that Lalita betrayed him. According to him, the two had a love affair for some time.
