State government counsel Nutan Yadav was shot dead at her official residence in Etah on Monday night (August 5, 2019), The Hindu reported.

As per the report, Ms. Yadav, 35, hailed from the Berhan area of Agra district and was posted as assistant prosecution officer at Jalesar court in Etah district.

The preliminary investigation revealed that she was shot five times from close range.

Etah Additional Superintendent of Police Sanjay Kumar said: “Yadav was staying at her official residence opposite the Police Lines. She was unmarried and staying with her brother. On Monday night, she was apparently alone. The body was first seen by Yadav’s maid on Tuesday morning and she called the neighbours.”

“We have registered an FIR against two persons under Section 302 of the IPC and two teams have been formed to nab the culprits,” Mr. Kumar added.

Reportedly, this is the third murder of a woman lawyer in the State in the last couple of months.
