Women killed in Firing in Bidar (vidya nagar)

: A five-member gang sprayed bullets on a 40-year-old woman travelling in a car here on Sunday afternoon over previous enmity. She died of bullet wounds at Bidar Government Hospital within hours.
The victim – Vidyavathi Basavaraj Gode – was returning to her Vidya Nagar home along with her second son, Johnson, when their vehicle was attacked by the car-borne assailants at Ramatheertha Circle here. The gang fired at Johnson, but when he ducked, his mother took the hit. Police said Vidyavathi’s daughter-in-law’s former boyfriend, Rubin, could be behind the attack, as he felt he was cheated in love.
Hanumanth Ladu, a former member of the Bidar zilla panchayat, claimed that Rubin was in love with his daughter, Swarna, and tried to elope with her. After rescuing her from Rubin’s clutches, Hanumanth married off his daughter to Vidyavathi’s first son, Symond.

Police said Rubin’s target was Symond, who used to drive the car regularly. On Sunday, his brother Johnson was at the wheel. The five attackers have been identified as Ismail, Ishaq, Rubin, Neelamma and Jaipal. Both Hanumanth and Basavaraj have filed complaints at the Gandhi Ganj police station.
