A man and his lover have been arrested for trying to kill his wife and dump her in an abandoned area in Ghaziabad before they were caught by police.
The police admitted the woman with a gunshot wound in a hospital and detained Yashwant Rana alias Sunny and his lover Anshu.
The incident occurred on Wednesday night in Murad Nagar area.
The police said Sunny, a resident of village Ghatewar in Baghpat district, was married to Shivani (27).
On Wednesday, a police team on night patrol stopped his car for routine check, only to notice a woman lying in an unconscious stage on the rear seat with a gunshot injury.
The police rushed the woman to the hospital and took Sunny and Anshu into custody.
