It was gathered that the policeman shot the woman while attempting to arrest a youth in the area.
Yusuf, who was on patrol alongside other policemen attached to the Doubelli police division, had accosted the young man believed to be related to the deceased at the entrance of their residence but was resisted by locals who demanded an explanation for his arrest.
During the ensuing argument, Sergeant Yusuf allegedly pulled the trigger to disperse the unruly crowds but instead gunned down the woman while another victim, identified as Arfad, sustained gunshot wounds to the chest
