The relationship between three close friends pursuing MA in psychology at a local college in UP took a horrific turn when Manthan Singh Senger shot dead Kritika Trivedi and pumped a bullet into the head of Hukmendra Singh Gurjar here on Friday. CM Yogi Adityanath has ordered stern action against the accused after the event took place.
Reports said Manthan (24) went to the college carrying a gun with the intention of killing both Hukmendra (22) and Kritika (22). He entered the classroom and saw Hukmendra attending the class. Manthan shot him in the back of his head, walked up to the blackboard and scribbled “Manthan Finished”.
He then looked around for Kritika. Not finding her in the classroom, he ran straight to Kritika’s house in Godu Compound area of Jhansi. Kritika was sitting in front of her house when Manthan reached. Within the blink of an eyelid, Manthan shot at her more than once. Hearing the gunshots, her relatives and neighbours rushed out and overpowered him.
Kritika’s relatives and neighbours then tied Manthan to an electric poll and called the cops, who immediately arrested him. Both the victims were rushed to Jhansi Medical College, where Kritika succumbed during treatment. Hukmendra is said to be in a critical state. He was later shifted to Delhi. Police said all the three knew each other since 2016.
While Hukmendra and Kritika belong to Jhansi, Manthan is a resident of MP’s Niwari district. As per Hukumendra’s uncle Sanjay Singh, who is a clerk in the same college, both the boys were good friends. Jhansi SSP Dinesh Kumar P said: “The accused and the victims were close friends. They had developed some misunderstanding over relationship issues. Manthan suspected that Hukumendra was spreading some rumours about their relationship.” He added: “The accused had come prepared to shoot both his friends and acted accordingly. We have booked him under murder and attempt-to-murder charges.
