A mother of three was on Friday shot dead by her paramour whom she had met on the social-networking website Facebook nearly three years ago.

Vineet Singh, 22, killed Jyoti Kori, 45, at the picturesque Marble Rocks Waterfall in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, in India and then shot himself.

He died at a local hospital later. Vineet, who hailed from Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, reportedly killed Kori in a fit of rage after he came to know that she was a 45-year-old married woman and a mother of three, and that she had lied to him on Facebook that she was 21 years old and unmarried.

Vineet was unemployed, while Kori was the bored housewife who was a regular on Facebook, police said. The incident came to light after a blood-soaked Vineet sought help from people picnicking nearby. Jabalpur superintendent of police (SP) Harinarayanachari Mishra said the two were in touch for less than three years.

Jyoti’s husband is a clerk in the irrigation department. Her husband and all three children, including her 21-year-old eldest daughter, had no clue about of Kori’s whereabouts.

Mishra said it seemed the murder took place in a fit of rage. A source said that when Vineet was brought to the hospital, he kept repeating that he was cheated by a married woman. The two had never exchanged photographs and their meeting on Friday was their first.

Jyoti told her family that she was going to her mother’s home for two days, while Vineet told his parents that he was going to Delhi in search of a job. The woman left home and went to her parental home on Thursday, but left early in the morning.
