The Delhi Police on Thursday arrested a man who allegedly opened fire inside his in-laws' house to threaten his wife after she left home following a quarrel between them, officials said.
On Thursday, police received a call from woman named Neelam (30) who complained that her husband had come to her parents' house in Kunwar Singh Nagar and fired two rounds inside the house, police said.
During enquiry, police found that Neelam and her husband Bijender Lakra got married in 2014. Bijender Lakra was an alcoholic and had frequent fights with his wife, police said.
