The police have lodged an FIR in the case of the woman who was allegedly shot in the head by bike-borne assailants on October 26 in Karhera village. However, the victim’s husband insisted that the assailants wanted to snatch chain, but Ghaziabad cops omitted the fact from the complaint.

On October 26, Nazma (32) of Karhera village was allegedly shot at by two-bike borne men while returning after dropping her daughter off to tuition. She is being treated at GTB Hospital in Delhi and is still unable to speak.

On October 29, the police filed an FIR against two unknown persons under Section 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on the basis of the complaint filed by the victim’s husband, Jahid.

However, Jahid, an electrician at a private firm in Delhi, said that he was forced to omit chain snatching in the written complaint. He has alleged that his wife’s chain was snatched in the incident.

“The police officials told me to write that the bike-borne men fired at my wife with the intention of killing her. They said I should not write that they also robbed her of her gold chain as one section of attempt to murder will be enough. As I did not know much about it, I followed their instructions,” said Jahid.

However, the police denied the allegations.

“The victim’s husband wrote the complaint himself and the FIR has been lodged on the basis of the complaint. Moreover, we have not yet been able to establish whether the assailants robbed the woman of her gold chain,” said Anup Singh, circle officer, Sahibabad.

“The case is still not clear as we have not yet taken a statement from the victim because she has not recovered from the injury. If she confirms that the assailants took her chain, we will add the sections accordingly,” said Singh.
