Two people were shot dead and another critically injured Monday following a scuffle over a disputed property in the city's Short Street area, police said.
"Two people were killed on the spot and another critically injured after they were shot at. The incident happened in the early hours (Monday) when a group of people forcibly entered a house and a woman inmate opened fire," said P.K. Ghosh, joint commissioner of police (crime).
Ghosh said CCTV camera footage shows a woman opening fire at the group who intruded into the house. One person has been arrested in this connection.
"Whether there was a gun battle, whether the intruders carried guns, we will have to look into it," added Ghosh.
