Gorakhpur: A woman teaching volunteer
was allegedly shot dead by two unidentified men at Chauri
Chaura area here in the district, police said on Friday.

Kalindi(30) was going to her school in Rampur Buzurg
village yesterday, when two motorcycle-borne miscreants fired
two shots at her from very close range, they said.

The woman died on the spot.

The police rushed to the spot and controlled the mob
who were demanding immediate arrest of the culprits.

Meanwhile, family members of the victim suspect her
husband Ram Singh`s involvement in the killing as he was
opposed to her working as teaching volunteer (Shiksha Mitra),
police said, adding that she was deserted by Singh two years
ago.

A case has been registered against Singh and his
associate Nanhey Singh in this regard, they added.
