Three persons have been arrested for opening fire at a woman in Laxmi Nagar in Jaipur, police said.

The shooting took place on Wednesday, allegedly because the woman married a person from a different faith. 

The arrests were made within hours of the incident, police said adding that one more accused in the shooting is absconding and a search has been launched for him.

The survivor has been identified as Anjali Verma and she was allegedly shot after her brother-in-law Abdul Aziz conspired to kill her for the inter-religion wedding.

"A case has been registered against brother-in-law Abdul Aziz and his friends on the statement of the injured girl, Anjali Verma, wife of Abdul Latif. The girl's brother-in-law Aziz, his friends Mohammad Raja and Raju and the shooter Kalim, a resident of Bihar, have been arrested by Jaipur police late on Wednesday night," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Jaipur Commissionerate) Vandita Rana.

Police have also recovered a pistol from the accused.

"Kalim had shot Anjali with this pistol. At the same time, the search for another accused Abid is going on," added DCP Vandita Rana. -- ANI
