Woman Lawyer, 35, Shot Dead At Home: UP Police

A state government counsel was shot dead at her residence in yet another fatal attack on women lawyers in Uttar Pradesh.

Etah Superintendent of Police of Sanjay Kumar said government counsel Nutan Yadav was shot dead in her residence on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday.

“Yadav, 35, was living in the government quarters in Etah opposite the Police Lines. She was unmarried and was living alone,” said Sanjay Kumar.

“A couple of people used to come from her village and stay at her residence. She was found shot dead,” Mr Kumar told PTI.

The victim was a native of Agra.

“Prima facie those visiting her house are under suspicion. Her family members also suspect the role of these persons,” the officer added.

Etah Senior Superintendent of Police Swapnil Mamgain, meanwhile, told reporters that the crime was apparently committed by a close acquaintance of the family.

“The culprit will be booked and action will be initiated,” he said.

Around two months back, Uttar Pradesh Bar Council president Darvesh Yadav was allegedly shot dead in Agra court premises. (HINDI) (HINDI)
