on arrival,” police said.
The passers-by managed to nab Mushiram and later handed him over to police.
Rakesh, an eyewitness, said: “I was standing metres away and talking on the phone when I heard this man shouting for help. The stretch is poorly lit so things were not visible clearly, though we heard gunshots. We ran to help him and saw the woman lying in a pool of blood. A few people ran to nab the man who was trying to run. We caught him.”
A case of murder has been registered and further investigation is underway.
