‘Indian-Origin Woman Killed By Husband In U.S.’


Washington: A 48-year-old Indian-American woman has been shot dead in the U.S. State of California with police arresting her husband for her murder. Sonia Nallan — a technical recruiter at Encore Semiconductors — was allegedly shot dead by her husband James Nallan, also an Indian-American, at a home on Indigo Oak Lane, San Jose. James (63) was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for murder.

Officers arrived to find her with at least one gunshot wound, police said. She was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The motive in the shooting that took place on Saturday is still under investigation, San Jose Police Department said. Chris Nallan, the suspect’s younger brother, visited the Nallans’ two-story stucco and said the family is in shock.
