The victim and the alleged shooter came from families that knew each other. Kajal Sahu’s father runs a pan shop, while the accused’s mother is a teacher. The shocking murder sparked protests in the town, with traders keeping the market closed for nearly two hours on Friday. They handed a memorandum to the police, demanding justice for the victim.

The market reopened only after the accused was arrested. The incident has sent shockwaves through the community, highlighting the need for increased safety measures for women. The police are conducting a thorough investigation to gather more evidence and determine the motive behind the crime.

Such incidents serve as a stark reminder of the importance of addressing issues related to personal relationships and mental health.
