Mainpuri: An Army jawan allegedly shot dead a woman after her relative included his family’s name in a list of people who had returned to their village in Alipur here following the outbreak of Covid-19, police said on Thursday, April 2.

The jawan Shailendra along with three others stormed into the house of one Vinay Yadav, who had included his name and that of his family in the list of people who had returned from Kolkata recently.

As the jawan started assaulting Vinay Yadav, his brother Dinesh and sister-in law Sandhya rushed to his rescue. Shailendra opened fire killing 36-year-old Sandhya on the spot, police said.

An FIR has been lodged at Kurra police station and Shailendra has been arrested, Superintendent of Police, Ajay Kumar Pandey said.

Vinay Yadav, on the instructions of the village panchayat, had prepared a list of people who have returned home from other districts following the spread of COVID-19.

People returning to their villages from cities have been asked to self quarantine themselves to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
