Carrying fresh flowers and a loaded handgun, a 43-year-old man drove from Atlanta to Yonkers to talk with his estranged wife and then shot her to death before killing himself, authorities said yesterday.
Anuradha Aggarwal, 40, was gunned down in the living room of her second-floor apartment Friday morning by Kapil Kohli, the man she was trying to divorce, Yonkers police and the victim's family said.
Kohli showed up at Aggarwal's apartment Friday morning, after driving from his home in Atlanta in a rented car, police said.
Aggarwal had filed for divorce from Kohli in March and had tried to get a restraining order against him, so the visiting nurse was alarmed when she saw him at her door, but she let him in anyway, said her mother, Phool Aggarwal.
The man acted strangely as the couple chatted in the living room, said Aggarwal's mother, who was in the apartment, but she had no reason to suspect he would pull out a gun and shoot her daughter 11 times.
Phool Aggarwal cowered in the bathroom when she heard the shooting start, she told the Daily News.
"I heard my daughter screaming [but] when I came out of the bathroom, my daughter is not screaming," the 66-year-old woman said. "She is already dead."
After peaking into the living room, Phool Aggarwal raced to her bedroom to call cops, she said. Just as she began speaking with a 911 operator, she heard Kohli's final shot. He had apparently turned the gun on himself.
When cops arrived, the flowers that Kohli had given to Aggarwal were still on the living room table.
A Glock handgun was found next to Kohli's body and several spent shells were discovered in the living room, police said.
For the past two months, Aggarwal's husband of 2-1/2 years, who she suspected was cheating on her, had been calling her family members incessantly, demanding to know why she was seeking a divorce, said her lawyer, Charu Narang.
The nurse had tried to get a restraining order against Kohli, but couldn't because she wasn't being directly harassed, Narang added.
"She was caring and loving," Aggarwal's grief-stricken mom said. "She wanted to have a loving husband who wouldn't cheat on her."
