Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 15March 18 Why keep guns?
It was disheartening to read about the Uttar Pradesh teacher who was fatally shot, as he clicked pictures (“UP teacher fatally shot as he clicked pictures”, Gulf News, March 10). This tragic incident happened in the Indian capital, New Delhi, as the teacher was in the city to attend a wedding and was staying at his cousin’s house. His cousin took his father’s licenced pistol and was playing with it when he accidently shot the teacher in the abdomen, leading to his death. Parents should not keep guns in cupboards, or in places where they are visible to children. Such incidents should be condemned and there must be justice for the lost life. This is a sad state of affairs.
