It is after the scuffle, which lasted less than three minutes, according to sources, that the man shot her on the head from a close range killing her instantly.He immediately turned the gun onto his head, shorting himself dead.”From the argument I had, it is about love that has gone sour” said an officer who sought anonymity.His lover, a civilian, who manages the canteen is married but the victims are reportedly been having affair for the last one year.
