Gurugram double shooting being perceived as a result of fanatic evangelism by a neoconvert

The shocking Gurugram double-shooting case, which transpired in broad daylight, wherein the official gunman to the Gurugram Additional District Judge Krishan Kant, shot the judge’s seventeen-year-old son and wife, left the throng of onlookers in a frenzy and the country in a deep state of shock. The initial investigation insinuates that the shooting may be a result of fanatical evangelism of the gunman.

Accused constable Mahipal, himself a recent convert, was pressurising judge’s family to convert to Christianity. He has previously converted 14 others including CRPF men.

The gunman, Mahipal (32), had open fired at the judge’s wife and son at Gurgaon’s Arcadia market near South City-II in Sector 51 here on Saturday. Mahipal fired five rounds in all. Two bullets hit the judge’s wife Ritu in the neck and torso, while his son Dhruv was shot once in the head and twice in the torso.

While the onlookers stood there filming the ghastly crime on their mobile phones the accused reportedly fled the scene in the judge’s white Honda City. He was, however, later cornered by the police near Gwal Pahadi village. He opened fire but was overpowered and arrested.

The critically injured mother-son duo was taken to Medanta Medicity. While Kant’s 37-year-old wife Ritu succumbed to her injuries late Saturday night, the condition of his 17-year-old son Dhruv, a Class XII student, is stated to be critical.

The accused during the interrogation confessed that he was disturbed as he did not like to run errands for the family and felt he was ‘possessed’ at the time of the incident. He furthered that he had called up the judge to confess his crime after he shot his family.

Unable to establish any monetary or related motive behind the crime, the investigating officials suggest that the gunman was mentally unstable as he often spoke about his recent conversion to Christianity and used to quote extensively from the Bible. He was also claiming that it was every Christian’s duty to eliminate “demons”.

Commissioner of police, KK Rao confirmed, “Investigations are on and we are still to know the real motive. Yes, he had been speaking about the Bible”.

Meanwhile, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar expressed shock over the incident and summoned the Home Secretary and state DGP. He has suggested counselling of cops entrusted with the security of VIPs.
