Pune: A gynaecologist was shot dead at her clinic in Hinjawadi area in Pune by her 38-year-old techie husband over domestic issues in their marriage.

Anjali Patidar, a 34-year-old woman who practiced gynaecology, was shot dead by her husband, Manoj Patidar, with a country-made pistol.

Manoj, who is 38 and works in an IT company in Pune, had acquired a pistol for Rs 20,000 to shoot his third wife. The police investigating the case said, “On Wednesday, following a fight over some domestic issue, he allegedly shot her in the forehead and ran away leaving their one-and-half-year-old baby.”

Manoj had almost made his escape from the city when the police caught up with him and arrested him for the murder of Anjali Patidar.

Police claim that Manoj’s two ex-wives had died under ‘mysterious’ circumstances, cases that will now be opened and investigated upon.
