Gurugram, Dec 8 (IANS) A 40-year-old man has allegedly shot dead his maternal uncle over a domestic dispute in Sector 39 area in Gurugram.
The deceased has been identified as Virender Singh alias Pappu of Jharsa village in Gurugram.
The victim was returning from a wedding ceremony on Monday evening when the incident took place. After shooting dead his uncle, the accused Kaushal surrendered to the police and handed over the weapon which was used to commit the crime.

In the night, Singh went to Sector-39 to attend a wedding ceremony of a neighbour’s daughter. On his way back, Kaushal shot him in the chest,” said Subhash Boken, spokesperson of the Gurugram police.
