NOIDA: A 53-year-old man who allegedly shot his daughters ex-father-in-law twice in the head, leaving him dead on the spot, at a farmhouse in the city during a wedding function earlier this week, was arrested from Ghaziabads Tigri roundabout on Thursday. Police also recovered the licenced revolver used in the crime. Four police teams from Noida were in pursuit of Shekhar Yadav, or Chandra Shekhar, after he shot Ashok Yadav, a resident of Noidas Sector 51, at the Bisrakh farmhouse, where they both were guests, on Monday evening.The teams conducted searches at his possible hideouts in Delhi, Hapur, Ghaziabad and Faridabad. Over 150 people, including waiters and guests, were also questioned while several suspects were detained.On Thursday, using inputs from local intelligence, we arrested the Shekhar around 4am near the Tigri roundabout. A revolver and some cartridges were also seized from him, DCP (Central Noida) Suniti said.According to police, Ashoks younger son Upendra and Shekars daughter recently reached an out-of-court settlement after two years of separation and divorce proceedings. The legal proceedings that dragged on for months apparently led to a conflict between the two families. There also seems to be acrimony over the divorce settlement, police said.Shekhar is claimed to have told his interrogators that the shootout was not premeditated, but a result of a heated dispute during the function.The accused has claimed that his daughter was married to Ashok Yadavs son in 2021 He has accused the father-son of harassing his daughter constantly, who subsequently left their house and returned to live with her parents. Despite several mediation meetings with people from the community and Ashok, no solution could be reached, Suniti said.On November 27, Shekhar attended the wedding ceremony where Ashok, his brother, elder son Bhupendra Yadav and other family members were also present. A fight broke out between the two families when they came face to face and ended in a shootout. Shekhar faces charges under IPC sections related to attempt to murder, rioting and criminal intimidation. We are also working with Ghaziabad police to revoke his arms licence. Another gun is allegedly registered to him, which we are investigating, the DCP said.
