The city police have ruled out the possibility of the presence of a third person at the house of Sushil Joshi at Azad Nagar on Saturday when her 'criminal' paramour Mahinder Singh Titu visited her. Both were found dead with bullet injuries on their bodies.
On Saturday, the police had suspected that it could be a case of murder also and might have been killed by someone unknown person.
However, on Sunday, the police said that after several rounds of investigation, it has come out that Titu probably fired three shots from his country-made pistol at Sushil after a heated argument before shooting himself.
A medical board comprising three doctors of the civil hospital conducted a post-mortem examination of Joshi and Titu and bodies were handed over to respective families later on for cremation.
But the police are still clueless on the 7.65 mm pistol Titu had brought and was recovered from the spot of the crime as he was not entitled to get a weapon legally due to his involvement in several criminal cases and being a bad character in police records.
The police said that it was clear that the weapon was illegal but the source was yet to be identified.
