Preliminary investigation revealed the man had used his father’s licensed pistol. His father, police said, is a CISF constable.

The woman, Kajal, and the man, Jatin Sarkar, who were shot in their stomach, work at a Noida call centre.

An eyewitness named Arun, who was with the couple, told police that he saw the assailant storming towards Kajal and fired a shot at her after an argument.

Arun fled in his motorcycle and informed the police control room around half a kilometer from where the couple was shot.

An investigating officer said, the assailant walked into a park where the couple was sitting and got into an argument, after which he fired two shots at them.
