Gurugram, May 23

A man shot himself in an SUV on the Delhi-Gurugram Expressway while driving his pregnant wife back from a maternity clinic late on Friday night, police said on Saturday.

Ravi Kumar, 34, and his seven months pregnant wife Riya were having an argument when he stopped his car on Rampura flyover and shot himself, sources said.

The man had lost his job during the lockdown and the couple were worried about financial security.   

The bullet exited his head and hit his wife sitting on the passenger seat, police sources said.  

Some passersby spotted the couple and took them to a hospital immediately.

They are both at Safdarjung Hospital currently.

Ravi Kumar is still critical. His wife, who is recovering, gave her statement to the Delhi Police on Saturday, who then forwarded the case to Gurugram Police.

Deputy Commissioner of Police South Zone Deepak Sehrawat said. “According to Riya, Ravi’s job loss brought him under depression and that they were having too many arguments lately. They were returning from a routine check-up when they had another argument. He pulled out a gun from his pocket in a fit of rage and shot himself”.
