Kullu, June 24
A 32-year-old Delhi businessman allegedly shot dead his wife’s friend before turning the gun on himself at a hotel near Manali on Friday.
Sources said Ravleen Kaur Chawla (30) and her sister Ashneet Kaur (24) of Delhi had taken Hotel Himalayan Oak at Shuru village on lease from a local about six months ago. Ravleen’s husband Rishabh Saxena was running a camping business in the Ghiyagi area of Banjar subdivision in Kullu. In her statement to the police, Ravleen alleged Rishabh armed with a pistol reached the hotel around 4 am. He got infuriated on seeing her friend Sunny Sheravat (31) at the hotel. After assaulting her, Rishabh shot Sunny and turned the gun on himself, she alleged. Both Rishabh and Sunny died on the spot.
