Bihar teenager shoots Marcaim girl at her home

Ponda/Panaji: Marcaim was witness to another murder on Thursday evening, bringing back 14-year-old memories of the Tanuja Naik murder case. She was killed by two youths from north India.
Tension ran high in the village after Sujata Gokuldas Naik, 19, a first year BA student at the Khandola government college, was allegedly shot dead by Nikhil Kumar, 19, a native of Bihar, at her residence in Ladewada, Marcaim, in Ponda taluka. After shooting Naik, Kumar shot himself and then called the police control room and said he had been shot.

Around 7pm, Kumar came to Naik's house looking for her. After the girl's mother informed him that she was not at home, he left. At the time only the victim's mother and grandmother were at home, South Goa SP Shekhar Prabhudesai said.
Kumar returned 15 minutes later. On seeing him, the girl rushed to the first floor of the house, but the youth spotted her. He ran after her to the first floor and asked her to follow him at gun point. The mother tried to intervene, but Kumar shot her in the hand and then dragged the victim to the ground floor where he shot her in the chest. Naik died on the spot.
Kumar then shot himself. Police sources said Kumar used a 12 bore gun belonging to his father, who works as a security guard.
Kumar's family lives in Loutolim where some of the girl's relatives also reside. Kumar may have met her while she was visiting her kin.
Police took the accused to the sub-district hospital at Ponda first and then to the Goa Medical College and Hospital, Bambolim. Doctors said the condition of accused continues to be serious.
Police is waiting for the condition of the accused to stabilize before taking his statement. Police is yet to ascertain the exact motive behind the crime.
