It was during the scuffle that Neelu Kumari's father-in-law suddenly whipped out his gun and shot them dead from point-blank range leading all the three people dead on the spot, said the police official.  

A villager said that the incident was a case of 'pakadua shaadi (forced marriage)’, in which men are abducted and married off to women against their will, and that was the reason Neelu Kumari's in-laws were not taking her to their home even after two years of marriage.
