Guns kill

leave a comment »

In the reports on the death of Varsha Bhosle, daughter of Asha Bhosle, one fact stood out: the suicidally depressed person had access to multiple guns. TOI reported:

Hours after iconic playback singer Asha Bhosle’s daughter Varsha Bhosle, 56, shot herself at their Peddar Road residence on Sunday night, police were trying to trace the owner of the Baby Browning .22 pistol that she used to kill herself.

There are two guns in the family – Asha Bhosle’s brother Hridaynath Mangeshkar owns a .32 pistol, while her son Anand owns a .45 pistol. However, till late night cops knew nothing about the ownership of the Belgian make Baby Browning that Varsha put to her left temple at pulled the trigger sometime in the night.

HT added a day later:

Singer Asha Bhosle finally cleared all doubts over the ownership of the pistol that Varsha, her daughter used, to end her life.

“The pistol that Varsha used to shoot herself is registered in my name. It is very old and it had been lost. We don’t know how Varsha got her hands on it,” Mid-Day quoted Asha Bhosle as telling the cops.

Many domestic guns hurt people they are supposed to protect.
