An Indian dancer was shot at a wedding as she stopped performing during the event and has now been hospitalized.
In one of the videos of the incident, she can be seen initially dancing on the stage. Late she pauses, sounds of gunshot are heard, and she falls down holding her face.
Police has informed the reporters that they have identified the shooter but he is currently on the run.
This incident occurred during a wedding celebration on the 1st of December in a village in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
However, it was brought to light several days later as it became viral on several messaging platforms.
Although the culprit is on the run, the police is affirmative that they will be able to arrest him.
Wedding violence has become a common phenomenon in some parts of the country where some of the guests carry guns, primarily for firing in the air as a celebration of the occasion.
However, with these revelries getting out of one’s control, violence is not an uncommon thing anymore.
A similar incident had occurred in the year of 2016 in the northern state of Punjab, where a pregnant woman was murdered after being shot in the stomach during a dance performance at a wedding.
In November of the year 2016, a gun-toting god-woman murdered three people including the aunt of the groom, after firing some celebratory shots at a wedding.
In the year 2018, Punjab police caught a man after he was accused of shooting dead his neighbor during a pre-wedding party by mistake.
He had fired bullets into the air for celebrating the upcoming wedding of his daughter. But one of the bullets had hit his neighbor in the forehead, causing immediate death.
