New Delhi, Dec 18:
A 50-year-old widow was shot dead by three men in her house here, police said Thursday, adding they were looking for her son-in-law and two accomplices.
Premwati, who lived with her 15-year-old younger daughter, was killed at Narela in west Delhi late Wednesday.
Police said they were hunting for Dinesh Mathur, the husband of the woman’s elder daughter, and his two associates.
