High drama prevailed in the outskirts of Bengaluru on Friday evening, when a woman allegedly shot her husband in a moving car on Hosur road.
According to reports, Hamsa (47) pulled out a loaded pistol and shot at her husband Sairam thrice on his abdomen, allegedly following an argument.
The couple, reportedly married for over two decades, were returning from Hosur in Tamil Nadu to their residence in HSR Layout.
After being shot at, 53-year-old Sairam, who was driving the SUV, rushed out and got into a BMTC bus. On seeing this, Hamsa got behind the wheel, chased the bus and eventually blocked it. Although she managed to get into the bus and attack him again, she was caught by the passengers and was handed over to the police.
Multiple reports indicate that the couple had consumed alcohol when they had stopped for a late lunch at Anekkal and that they had a troubled marriage. Sairam is reportedly the owner of a private security agency.
â€œThe couple had problems in their marriage. According to the wife, an argument started between them and Sairam allegedly hit Hamsa," a senior police officer told The Times of India.
Medical director of Sparsh Hospital, Dr Sharan Patil, told TOI: â€œSairam underwent surgery for multiple wounds in his abdomen.Doctors are trying to stop the bleeding, which is the challenge now. Once the bleeding stops, we will be able to start treatment."
The report also states that Hamsa gave contradictory statements to the police, when questioned.
According to NDTV, Hamsa has also been admitted to the hospital for medical examination and will be charged with attempt to murder.
Electronic City police inspector, who rushed to the spot told TNM that Hamsa had chased the BMTC bus in the SUV.
"When we reached the spot, she was sitting in the car itself. We arrested her and immediately rushed them to the hospital. Following this, we have transferred the case to the jurisdictional Surya City police station."
