Pipli amok case
Date August 1938
Location(s) Pipli, British Raj
Killed 12
Injured 8
Weapon(s) Gun

In August 1938 an Indian shot dead twelve people and seriously wounded eight others in Pipli, a village near Bhatinda, British Raj.[1][2][3]

The young man had married a short time prior to the murders, and his wife was abducted by some goondas from Pipli. She was later released after paying a ransom of Rs. 100, but considering this a disgrace to the family, the man bought a gun and cartridges and shot those goondas he suspected of having been involved in the incident.[4]
