New Delhi - A 22-year-old man shot dead a woman he had befriended online and then shot himself after discovering she had misled him about her age and marital status, police in India said on Sunday.

Vineet Singh, an unemployed man living in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh state, and Jyoti Kori, 45, a housewife in the central Indian town of Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh apparently had a two-year romance on Facebook without ever having met in person, said Jabalpur superintendent of police Hari Mishra.

Singh set up a first meeting with Kori in Jabalpur on Friday, and upon discovering that she was not 21 as she had claimed and that she was married with three children, he shot her.

After shooting and wounding himself, Singh sought help and was taken to hospital where he died. Investigations were ongoing, Mishra said.
