A UT police constable on Friday shot dead his wife at Government Multi-specialty Hospital, Sector 16 before shooting himself. The woman, identified as Dimple, was an employee of the hospital.


Eye witnesses said that the couple had an argument for some time after which in the fit of anger the constable fired four shots at her with his service revolver.

A stray bullet also hit a woman patient who had come to the hospital.

The policeman in uniform then attempted suicide before being overpowered by another police constable.

More details are awaited.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
