Caught on CCTV: Woman and her and son, both witnesses in father's murder case shot dead
In a shocking incident on Wednesday, an elderly woman and her son were shot dead by unidentified gunmen.
While the woman was shot dead outside her house where she was relaxing on a charpoy along with another woman, her son was shot dead inside his car while driving home. Both of them were witnesses to the murder of the woman’s husband and had been under pressure to withdraw the case.

The entire incident that took place in Sorkha village in Partapur locality of Meerut (the murder of the woman) was captured on CCTV. While the woman's deceased son has been identified as Balvinder, 26, the mothers has been identified as 60-year-old Nichattar Kaur.

In the CCTV footage from the camera installed outside the victim's house, the three armed men who can be seen approaching the woman, after surrounding her start pumping bullets into her. The assailants are heard asking the other woman sitting with Kaur to leave. The assailants fire about 8 bullets at point blank range to ensure that the Kaur is dead before fleeing the scene of crime.

Kaur’s husband had been killed in October 2016 over a land dispute and both the mother and the son were witnesses to the crime and that could have been the reason behind their murder, reported IANS.

Incidentally, the murders took place a day before the two were to testify in front of the court in the case concerning the murder of Kaur's husband Narendra Singh.

While the police have claimed to have arrested one of the accused, two others are still at large. Of the two accused that are still at large, one is reportedly the uncle of the deceased man and also the main accused who had killed the woman’s husband.
