Indian groom killed during ‘celebratory fire’, video goes viral
SHAHJAHANPUR: An Indian groom was killed during celebratory firing at the wedding function in Rampur village of Lakhimpur Kheri district on Sunday night. Video of the incident is going viral on the internet.
As seen in the video, the man identified as Ramchandra, firing two shots from his gun — when the first missed the groom, Sunil Verma, he fired another shot that hit Verma’s chest.
Police have booked Ramchandra under section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The accused, who is said to be a close friend of the groom, is absconding, said police.
ASP Ghanshyam Chaurasi told TOI, “Prima facie it appears that the groom was killed during the celebratory firing, but police are probing other angles too.”
