Savita’s husband Radheshyam Kumaria (43) died on the spot while her brother-in-law Dheeraj Kumaria (45) succumbed to injuries at the hospital.

Ujjain superintendent of police (SP) Sachin Sharma said, “On Monday morning a woman reached Ingoriya police station with a country-made pistol and informed the police that she shot her husband and brother-in-law dead at her home. Radheshyam and Dheeraj had a fight over an ancestral land on Sunday night. The woman on Monday first fired at the brother-in-law Dheeraj who was performing puja, then shot Radheshyam, who was sleeping.”

“Radheshyam died on the spot. Dheeraj died in the hospital. When Dheeraj’s wife and his son came out after hearing the sound of firing, Savita fired at them too, but they managed to save themselves,” he added.

The woman informed the police that her husband Radheshyam was habitual drunkard. She was upset with daily abuses and fight among family members.

Police are investigating the matter. An FIR has been registered against Savita under section 302 (murder) of IPC.
