A 20-year-old woman, Roshni Ahirwar, on her way home after a college exam was shot dead by two men on a motorcycle in Jalaun district on Monday, police said.
The shooting is reported to have taken place at a spot about 200 metres from the local police post.
Roshni was a Bachelor of Arts (BA) student. She was returning home after writing an examination at her college when she was attacked, her father Man Singh said.
The assailants, who shot her in the head with a country-made pistol, dropped the weapon near the body and fled.
