New Delhi: A 38-year-old school teacher was shot death on Monday by unidentified assailants in Rohini’s Bawana area, police said. The deceased has been identified as Sunita, a resident of Bawana village.
“The police received a call at around 8.05 am regarding the shooting incident in Bawana area. After reaching the spot, it was found that a school teacher had sustained three bullet injuries — two in the chest and one in the stomach — and was lying in a pool of blood,” said DCP (Rohini) Rajneesh Gupta.
The woman was rushed to Maharishi Valmiki Hospital by a passerby, where she was declared brought dead. Her post-mortem was conducted in Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital and the body was handed over to her family members, the DCP said. Sunita was a teacher in a government school and was going to school on her two-wheeler in the morning.
She is survived by a 16-year-old daughter and an 8-year-old son, Mr Gupta added.
Sunita was a resident of Bawana village and worked at a government senior secondary girls’ school at Ferozepur in Sonipat. She was going to school when the assailants targeted her on the Bawana Road.
Initial probe suggests that the assailants were waiting for Sunita to kill her, the officer said.
“We are checking CCTV cameras in the area,” said the official.
