LUCKNOW: Apparently, in a case of highway horror, a newly-married couple from Chennai was shot at by two unidentified bike-borne miscreants on National Highway 58 in Muzaffarnagar disitrict of Uttar Pradesh on Saturday.

Aditya Kumar, 31, and Vijaya Lakshmi, 28, of Ramapuram in Chennai, were on their way back to New Delhi from the holy city of Haridwar on a motorbike when they were shot at around 4 pm on NH 58 in a stretch which fell under Nai Mandi police station in Muzaffarnagar district.

According to police sources, the couple, accompanied by a person Shyam Teja, were on a vacation to Uttarakhand.

Believably, the trio had hired two Royal Enfield bikes in Delhi and embarked upon a journey to Uttarakhand.

“The couple and the friend were on their way back to Delhi on motorbikes, as Aditya and Vijaya had to catch a flight to Chennai on Sunday from the national capital,” said SHO Madan Singh of Nai Mandi police station.

On nature and reason, SHO Singh said that it could be anything — a case of mistaken identity, a robbery bid or road rage.

As the miscreants fired, Aditya lost control and crashed to the road along with wife Vijaya. While Aditya got the shot in his neck while Vijaya was also hit grievously.

In the mean time, Teja informed the police about the incident. The injured couple was rushed to a hospital, which referred the couple to a Delhi hospital. They are fine now.
