Woman Shot Dead by Ex-husband and His Wife in Maryland

WASHINGTON, DC: An Indian American woman who lived just outside Washington, DC was murdered on Saturday morning by her former husband and his second wife.


Preeta Paul Gabba, 49, was crossing a street at around 7:45 a.m. when her ex-husband, Baldeo Taneja, along with his current wife, Raminder Kaur, fired at least one shot at Gabba. She collapsed on the roadway and was rushed to the hospital soon after, where she succumbed to her injuries.


While police are still piecing together the details of the case, the investigation has brought to light this much: Taneja and Gabba married in Pune in 2002 and separated in 2009, with their divorce being finalized in 2011. During their marriage, which was Gabba’s second, Taneja was reportedly often abusive towards Gabba. When Gabba immigrated to the US in 2008, one year after Taneja did for a job in Boston, he asked her to stay in a hotel rather than live with him.
